Constructing a Synthetic Population of Establishments for the Simmobility Microsimulation Platform

This paper presents a method for building a synthetic population of establishments in Singapore for incorporation into SimMobility platform, an integrated microsimulation model that represents households’ and firms’ short-, medium-, and long-term decisions, ranging from lane changing behavior, to daily activity pattern choices, to location choices. The synthetic population includes data on (1) establishments’ locations, (2) establishments’ industry type, (3) establishments’ employment size, and (4) their occupied floor area.
