New Horizons in Modeling and Simulation for Social Epidemiology and Public Health

New Horizons in Modeling and Simulation for Social Epidemiology and Public Health offers a comprehensive introduction to modeling and simulation that addresses the many complex research questions in social epidemiology and public health. Practical applications and illustrative examples are highlighted throughout the book, including classic case examples in agent-based modeling (ABM) and essential information on ABM use for infectious disease modeling, obesity and tobacco control.

The book also explores microsimulation (MSM) and explains how to make informed choices regarding time and space, data, policy rules and scope, population structure, validation, and more. In addition, the book addresses future directions for empirical research using ABM and MSM, such as convergence of aspects of both ABM and MSM into the same analyses, and examines the potential policy implications of findings of more complex and integrative models. This important book: - Provides a conceptual and methodological foundation for the application of agent-based modeling (ABM) and microsimulation models (MSM) - Includes a comprehensive and systematic survey of applications of ABM and MSM in empirical research - Discusses the policy implications of findings based on the more complex models of ABM and MSM - Presents fundamental concepts and methods for MSM and empirical evidence using MSM in the social sciences

Written for policy analysts, public planners, and practitioners in public health and public policy, New Horizons in Modeling and Simulation for Social Epidemiology and Public Health offers a fundamental guide to the social determinants of health and the use of ABM and MSM in the socials sciences and public health.
