mac.expression(country)
mac.expression1(country)

Arguments

country

Country code as defined for expressions.

Details

mac.expression and mac.expression1 generate expressions for the mean age of childbearing of the given country, for 5-year age groups and 1-year age groups, respectively. Note that pop.predict has to be run with keep.vital.events=TRUE for this to work.

Value

mac.expression returns a character string corresponding to the formula (17.5*R_c(15-19) + 22.5*R_c(20-24) + ... + 47.5*R_c(45-49))/100 where R_c(x) denotes the country-specific percent age-specific fertility for the age group x.

mac.expression1 returns a character string corresponding to the formula (10.5*R_c(10-11) + 11.5*R_c(11-12) + ... + 54.5*R_c(54-55))/100
