A large number of microsimulation models have been developed in Italy over the past years. Only few of them have been created to study specific regional contexts. This paper illustrates the development and validati on of TREMOD, a new “static” tax-benefit microsimulation model for the Italian province of Trento. TREMOD is based on the EUROMOD platform and is proposed as an ex-ante evaluation model applicable to local taxation and welfare policies. The main strength of TREMOD is the high quality of the data used. The input dat abase has been obtained by match-ing data from a local representative survey on hous eholds’ life conditions with administrative data on individual income tax returns. This aspect is one of the main strengths of TREMOD compared with other experiences in microsimulation mod-elling. As shown in this paper, the combination of survey and administrative data yields substantial gains in simulation precision.
