1 This model uses a micro-simulation approach where supply is projected based on the simulation of career choices of individual health workers. Demand for health care services is simulated for a representative sample of the current and future U.S. population based on each person’s demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, health behavior, and health risk factors that affect their health care utilization patterns.
