Abstract: This paper reports on the progress that has been made in the Modelling and Simulation for e-Social Science (MoSeS) project at the University of Leeds. This project seeks to use e-Science techniques to develop a national demographic model and simulation of the UK population specified at the level of individuals and households. The architecture of MoSeS is presented and discussed, with particular attention paid to the security requirements faced by the project. The demographic and forecasting models that are used by the project are introduced and discussed, as are the large storage requirements of the project. As part of this discussion, the initial development of a Storage Resource Broker storage facility is presented. The MoSeS portal is then introduced, and the initial results of running the demographic and forecasting models are presented and analysed. The paper concludes with a discussion on the future work that will be undertaken as part of this ongoing e-Social Science project.
