x

a HMDdata object.

...

other plotting parameters. Either passed to plot in a one-dimensional plot or passed to levelplot in a two-dimensional surface.

Details

The function needs HMDdata to be uploaded.

A HMDdata object can be produced by selectHMDdata.

The function recognizes the HMDdata object, its dimensions and its attributes (country, type of data and sex). Given the dimensions of the object the function plot either a simple unidimensional plot or a more complex shaded contour map over age and years.

Note that rates are automatically plotted in log-scale.
