Kinship Modeled Using Custom Links

This is a fairly simple agent based population model where people (males and females) are born, grow up, marry, have kids, get senior and die. We maintain the kinship relations by means of custom links (references) to other agents. And we take care of the kinship network consistency.
In this version of the model we added dynamic histograms to display the age distribution of the population and the distribution of the number of kids per family.
The histogram data objects are cleared und updated each model year, this is done in the cyclic event updateDistributions.

The model was created with AnyLogic - simulation software / Simulation education
