1, mx, ax, sex)



Vector of ages at the beginning of the age interval.


Life table death rate in age interval [x, x+n).


Numeric scalar. Subject-time alive in age-interval for those who die in the same interval. If NULL this will be estimated. A common assumption is ax = 0.5, i.e. the deaths occur in the middle of the interval. Default: NULL.


Sex of the population considered here. Default: NULL. This argument affects the first two values in the life table ax column. If sex is specified the values are computed based on the Coale-Demeny method and are slightly different for males than for females. Options: NULL, male, female, total.
