R library for spatial microsimulation

Spatial microsimulation is a method where we construct small area population data from the combination of various data sources. In order to perform this combination of census and survey data, we need an R library to standardize the procedure.

I’ve recently developed “sms” R library which combines census and survey data by using Simulated Annealing or Hill Climbing algorithms. Here are the links of the library:
