Age-specific mortality rate model as a function of HIV prevalence, child mortality (5q0), and adult mortality (45q15)

Description

This function produces a complete set of mortality rates for ages 0, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, ...,100+ given a region, sex, HIV prevalence, child mortality (5q0), and adult mortality (45q15)

Usage

1
mortmod.45q15(child.mort, adult.mort, prev, region = 1, sex = 1, opt=TRUE)

Arguments

child.mort

Probability of death between age 0 and 5, 5q0

adult.mort

Probability of death between age 15 and 60, 45q15

prev

HIV prevalence expressed as a percentage

region

An integer to indicate which regional model to use. 1 for Africa, 0 for Caribbean or Latin American

sex

An interger to indicate the sex of the desired life table. 1 for female, 0 for male

opt

If opt=TRUE, the model will use a value for the weight for the first SVD component that produces a set of age-specific mortality rates that produce a 45q15 that matches the input 45q15. The model will also adjust the first two (childhood) mortality rates (1q0, 4q1) in a proportional way so as to match the input 5q0.

Value

A set of mortality rates for ages 0, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, ...,100+
