MINT Overview

Some of our research papers use the Modeling Income in the Near Term (MINT) microsimulation model to make future projections about 21st century retirement income, marital trends, Social Security benefits, income, and poverty. These projections allow researchers and policy analysts to study future retirement conditions such as income and poverty, as well as the effects of policy changes.

The following resources provide more information on the MINT model.
