Changes in household structure may have profound consequences for a wide range of areas in demography and social policy. Household projection models developed in demography over the past few decades are primarily of the headship rate type, in which the dynamic processes of household formation and dissolution which underlie changes in household structure, essentially are treated as a black box. Back in 1988, NIDI started a pioneering study in order to develop a dynamic household projection model which explicitly focusses on the flows underlying household changes. The model, called LIPRO ('LIfestyle PROjections'), is based on the methodology of multistate demography, but includes several extensions to solve the particular problems of household modelling.
Although originally developed for household projections, the LIPRO computer program can in fact be used for a wide range of calculations in multistate demography. And indeed, LIPRO has been extensively used for various applications, in the Netherlands as well as in many other countries.
LIPRO 4.0, which is the first LIPRO version for Windows, is available for release since Spring 1999. It includes all the usual MicroSoft Windows facilities for user interface and data exchange. Communication with MicroSoft Excel has explicitly been incorporared. In addition, the full documentation is available within the program via Help, including the extensive tutorial materials. The tutorial, including the accompanying data and other input files, contains a detailed description of a marital-status exercise that can be used for familiarizing oneself with multidimensional demography in general and with its implementation in the LIPRO program in particular.

The original version of LIPRO was published in 1991 together with a book, describing the methodological background as well as an extensive concrete application. This book is no longer in print. However, a PDF version can be downloaded:
