This report documents TAZMOD, the SOUTHMOD model developed for Tanzania. It describes the different tax–benefit policies in place, how the microsimulation model picks up these different provisions, and the database on which the model runs. It concludes with a validation of TAZMOD results against external data sources.
The results presented in this report are derived using TAZMOD version 2.5 running on EUROMOD software. This work was carried out by University of Dar es Salaam in collaboration with the project partners. For further information on access to TAZMOD and other SOUTHMOD models, see the model page and the SOUTHMOD page.
The TAZMOD model and its documentation in this country report has been prepared within the UNU-WIDER project on ‘SOUTHMOD—simulating tax and benefit policies for development’. For more information, see the SOUTHMOD project page.
