mortmod.5q0: Age-specific mortality rate model as a function of HIV... In HIV.LifeTables: HIV calibrated model life tables for countries with generalized HIV epidemics

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 and child mortality alone (5q0)

Usage

 `1` ```mortmod.5q0(child.mort, prev, region = 1, sex = 1, opt=TRUE) ```

Arguments

 `child.mort` Probability of death between age 0 and 5, 5q0 `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 adjusts 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+
