Join us for the Policy Simulation Library (PSL) DC meeting hosted by AEI’s Open Source Policy Center to learn how computational simulation models are used to inform public policy decision-making.
After updates from PSL contributors and users, Geena Kim will present HISIM2, the new health insurance simulation model from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). HISIM2 generates estimates of health insurance coverage and premiums and is used for the CBO’s budget projections.
Everyone is welcome to the PSL DC meeting regardless of technical knowledge or experience, although please expect modeling code and results to be presented.
To learn more about PSL, visit www.PSLmodels.org and follow us on Twitter @PSLmodels.
If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.

Anderson Frailey is a research associate at the Open Source Policy Center at AEI. His areas of research include tax policy and universal basic income. He has made substantial technical contributions to economic modeling projects including Tax Data and Tax-Calculator. Mr. Frailey also is a consultant for the World Bank, assisting India’s Ministry of Finance in developing a microsimulation tax model. He received a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Texas at Austin.
Geena Kim is an economist at the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in the Health, Retirement, and Long-Term Analysis Division. Dr. Kim is part of the team that has developed CBO’s new health insurance simulation model, HISIM2, which is used to analyze the health insurance coverage effects of health care policy proposals. At CBO, she also worked on CBO’s long-term microsimulation model, which is used to analyze the long-term projections of federal spending on government programs, such as Social Security and health care programs. Before joining CBO, she conducted research on various health programs of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Dr. Kim received a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania, where her graduate work focused on structural estimation of stochastic dynamic models.
