The models and their features

The models used in the Economic and Social Affairs department are designed to model structural and geographical aspects of economic development in Germany as precisely as possible. This means high resolution at the sector level, modelling regional economic developments within Germany and highly detailed modelling of international trade, broken down by goods and trading partners.

The core component of the model system is INFORGE, in which international trade interdependencies are specified using the global trade model TINFORGE. LÄNDER and REGIO are used to model the German economy at the regional level. The SPARTEN data model allows detailed description of specific sectors, whilst DEMOS provides specific socioeconomic data.
