Parameterisation of individual working dynamics

Abstract : During the PRIMA European project, we conceived a conceptual model dedicated to the study of the evolution of the European Rural Areas in terms of demography and occupation of their populations. This is a hybrid agent-microsimulation model considering inhabitants as the basic elements composing in households. On the other hand, municipalities are the basic spatial element and the providers for employment and housings. This chapter presents the main objects and their relationships are identified as a first generic way to parameterize the dynamics of such a conceptual model for an implementation of a European region. This chapter explains how dynamics can be parameterised from data for an implementation for a French region. It focusses on the dynamics of work statuses and professions which can be derived from the European Labour Force Survey (LFS). The individual is considered from her entering on the labour market until the moment she decides to retire. Meanwhile, she can be fired, searching for a job when she is unemployed or already employed but also deciding becoming inactive for a while. Jobs are defined by a profession and an activity sector. The job offer is located at the municipality level and can correspond to the searched profession of an individual having a municipality of residence. The French implementation is described starting from the employment survey in France, which is the French declination of the LFS.
