synthACS: Synthetic Microdata and Spatial MicroSimulation Modeling for ACS Data

Provides access to curated American Community Survey (ACS) base tables via a wrapper to library(acs). Builds synthetic micro-datasets at any user-specified geographic level with ten default attributes; and, conducts spatial microsimulation modeling (SMSM) via simulated annealing. SMSM is conducted in parallel by default. Lastly, we provide functionality for data-extensibility of micro-datasets.
