Abstract: 
The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility to implement a tax and benefit microsimulation model for Ecuador using EUROMOD as an interface. We first present a detailed description of the main components of the tax and benefit system in Ecuador for year 2014. We then describe available micro datasets, which could be potentially used as input data for the microsimulation model. Finally, we provide an assessment and recommendations concerning the possibilities for simulating particular instruments of the tax-benefit system with the data available in the country.
