simPop: Simulation of Complex Synthetic Data Information

Tools and methods to simulate populations for surveys based on auxiliary data. The tools include model-based methods, calibration and combinatorial optimization algorithms, see Templ, Kowarik and Meindl (2017) <doi:10.18637/jss.v079.i10>) and Templ (2017) <doi:10.1007/978-3-319-50272-4>. The package was developed with support of the International Household Survey Network, DFID Trust Fund TF011722 and funds from the World bank.
