HMDdata containing, for each country, the
vector of years.
vector of ages.
list of matrices containing population with one age group
per row and one column per year. Matrices:
list of matrices containing deaths in same form as
list of matrices containing exposure in same form as
list of matrices containing mortality rate in same form as
The list contained 4 countries (Denmark, Japan, Sweden and
Switzerland). Data taken from the Human Mortality Database on 30 August

For a given country, the matrices have the same dimensions. The vector
age is the same for each country (0:110), whereas years depends
on the availability.
pop indicates population size on January 1st of each age and
death are death counts occurred during one age-year interval.
exposure population is approximated by the average of the
population size in the beginning and at the end of the year.
rate are computed as ratio between death counts and exposures.
