MortHump-package: Measure the Young Adult Mortality Hump

Description Details Author(s) References See Also

Description

Fit diverse models of mortality graduation, parametric or not, in order to isolate the hump that is often observed in the age-specific death rates during adolescence and early adulthood in human populations. Can handle either all-cause or cause-specific data. A description of the methods used can be found in Remund A., Camarda C. and Riffe T. (2018) Analyzing the Young Adult Mortality Hump in R with MortHump. MPIDR Technical Report TR-2018-3.
