prior, age groups, lx and dx values


This data set contains 4 objects, q0, age, lx and dx. q0 is a prior distribution for the eight Heligman-Pollard parameters. It was formed using prior.form(). age is a vector providing age groups (0-1, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14,...,100+) which matches the length of lx and dx. lx is a vector of persons at risk in the age groups described in age. dx is a vector containing the corresponding deaths in the age groups in age.




Four objects: q0 (a matrix with 8000 rows and 8 columns), age (a vector of length 22), lx (a vector of length 22), dx (a vector of length 22
