Fieldwork and Econometric Modeling of Large Cities to Advance the Evaluation of Urban and Economic Policy

We have coded a pilot model in Repast Simphony that we will develop iteratively by incorporating econometric data collected for about ten different zones in each of two cities; Singapore and Dakar. One innovative feature of the model will be the use of a transformational growth matrix, representing an econometric estimation of the mutual influences of all data variables, to serve as a dynamic environment shaping the reward structure of agents in the model. We have excellent institutional ties in both cities and expect to make a presentation in Singapore in January 2015 with the expectation that if our presentation is accepted the work in Singapore will be funded locally. We have already been invited to work in Dakar and so we are primarily seeking funds for travel to both cities and for research in Dakar where our host institution, the Centre de Suivi Ecologique, will need funds to participate. Several project faculty have institutional salaries that can support their work on this project and will donate their time so our salary requests are a minor part of our budget.
