A spatial microsimulation of population dynamics in Southern France: a model integrating individual decisions and spatial constraints

Abstract : The aim is to model the spatial distribution of the population dynamics in Southern France. First the philosophical differences between a micro-level approach and a meso-level approach are presented and their respective advantages are briefly compared from a general point of view. Then the model is presented. It is a microsimulation model but it has some rules defined at the aggregate level of the communes. Change occur through events as birth, death, migration, change of employment, that depend on probabilities that are linked to different individuals characteristics as sex, age etc. Four scenarios of development are proposed to test the effects of the creation of new employments.
