Burgers et al. (2010) have shown that, for the Trust And Tracing Game, sensitivity at the macro level and at the individual level can differ considerably. For instance, some parameter change may have little effect on the total number of transactions in the game, even if it greatly affects the performance of individual agents in different ways; other agents may step into the place of agents that do not perform well under the changed parameter settings. Sensitivity analysis at the individual level is complex.

8 Sensitivity Analysis in Agent-Based Model Validation The role of sensitivity analysis in agent-based simulation is to evaluate the fit between the theory and its implementation in the agent-based model (Gilbert 2008). In many types of simulation, sensitivity analysis is seen as a technical activity, aiming to improve the correctness of model implementation and the accuracy of forecasts made with the model. In the case of agent-based models, the relation between model formulation and output is hard to predict and sensitivity analysis also includes the discovery of emerging properties at the macro level.
