Heligman-Pollard parameter conversion to age-specifc probabilites of death

Description

Converts a set of Heligman-Pollard mortality model parameters into age-specific probabilities of death

Usage

1
hp.nqx(H.out, age = seq(0, 85, 1))

Arguments

H.out

A vector of length eight containing the values for the eight parameters of the model

age

A vector containing the ages at which the probability of death will be calculated

Value

Set of age specific probabilities of death equal to the length of age
