A function to calculate incidence rates for every combination of age and calendar years.
1 2  incidences(age_min, age_max, year_min, year_max, follow_up,
start_age, start_year, case)

age_min 
The age at which incidences should begin to be calculated. 
age_max 
The age at which incidences should stop to be calculated. 
year_min 
The calendar year at which indicidences should begin to be calculated. 
year_max 
The calendar year at which incidences should stop to be calculated. 
follow_up 
A vector of dimension 
start_age 
A vector of dimension 
start_year 
A vector of dimension 
case 
A vector of dimension 
This function can be used to obtain incidences for the functions est.expDeath
, var.expDeath
and inference.SMR
. A complete example of usage is provided in the help page of the screening
dataset.
A matrix whose first column is the number of personyears at risk, the second column is the calendar years, the third column is the ages and the fourth column is the incidence rates.
