The Urban Institute’s Dynamic Simulation of Income Model (DYNASIM) projects the size and characteristics—such as financial, health, and disability status—of the US population for the next 75 years. Using the best and most recent data available, it helps sort out how the profound social, economic, and demographic shifts that are transforming retirement will likely affect older adults, taxpayers, business, and government. The model can also show how outcomes would likely evolve under changes to public policies, business practices, or individual behaviors. This primer succinctly describes how DYNASIM works and what it can do.
