HOMES Research Reports are circulated to inform planners and researchers about research findings and training materials from the Household Model for Economic and Social Studies developed at the East-West Population Institute. The primary purpose of the HOMES project is to expand the scope and improve the quality of demographic information available for development planning and the formulation of economic and social policy by providing projections of the number and demographic characteristics of households.

    Using HOMES for population and development planning
    (Honolulu, HI : East-West Population Institute, 1989) Campbell, Burnham O. ; Mason, Andrew
    HOMES, Household Model for Economic and Social Studies, is a computer model developed at the East-West Center to forecast the number and demographic characteristics of households. By applying the model to standard population projections, the user is provided projections of the number of households; the age and sex of the household head; average household size; the number, age, and sex of household members; and other basic demographic information about households. This demographic information is used, in turn, to forecast related social and economic trends and to examine the links between population growth and economic development.
