The JISC-funded National e-Infrastructure for Social Simulation (NeISS) project aims to develop and provide new services to social scientists and public/private sector policymakers interested in “what-if” questions that have an impact upon society and can be tackled through social simulation. For the first what-if question, a traffic simulation modelling how congestion will affect routes within a city or region projected across a time-span of decades has been identified. This paper describes the work that has been done in implementing a secure, user-oriented environment that provides seamless access to relevant nationally significant data sets such as the 2001 Census and demographic transition statistics from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) , and a Population Reconstruction Model (PRM) simulator, which simulates a population of individuals or households based upon these data sets.
