Provides functions for using a model life table system generated from the Human Mortality Database

mortmod is the mortality model that is the basis for the system. The user can supply the two input parameters - family and level - and a complete mortality rate schedule can be generated. If the user has some measure of child mortality (or a partial schedule) and optionally 45q15, the function
hmd.DA can be used to find the appropriate family. Then
alpha.e0 can calculate an alpha value to generate a life table with a desired life expectancy. The function
mod.lt combines the steps outlined above. It will find the family and level based on the child (and possibly adult) mortality indicator and a desired life expectancy and return a complete life table generated with the appropriate input parameter values.
There is a graphical user interface implemented in the package that allows for generating model life tables, exporting them and plotting various measures of the life table. It can be invoked using the function
Note: In version 1.0, the calibration data set has been updated. Most recent HMD calibration data downloaded February 2015.
