Sensitivity analysis

Analysis used to determine how responsive model outputs are to changes in specific parameters, or policies or structures. Behavior that changes drastically suggests a critically important factor or high sensitivity. Conversely, if a large change in a parameter value or a structure results in small changes in behavior, that factor is not likely to be central to the dynamics in question; that is, the behavior shows low sensitivity.
