Datasets giving information on the baseyear and type of migration for each country. The 2012, 2015, 2017 and 2019 datasets also give information on country's specifics regarding mortality and fertility age patterns.

A data frame containing the following variables:
Numerical Location Code (3-digit codes following ISO 3166-1 numeric standard) - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_numeric.
Country name. Not used by the package.
UN internal code. Not used by the package.
The base year of migration.
Type of migration. Zero means migration is evenly distributed over each time interval. Code 9 means migration is captured at the end of each interval.
Dummy indicating if the country has generilized HIV/AIDS epidemics.
Type of mortality age pattern. Only relevant for countries with the entry “Model life tables”. In such a case, the b_x Lee-Carter parameter is not estimated from historical data. Instead is taken from the dataset
MLTbx using a pattern given in the
AgeMortalityType is equal to “Model life tables”, this value determines which b_x is selected from the
MLTbx dataset. It must sorrespond to one of the rownames of
MLTbx, e.g. “CD East”, “CD West”, “UN Latin American”.
Method for projecting age-specific mortality rates. It is one of “LC” (modified Lee-Carter, uses function
mortcast), “PMD” (pattern mortality decline, uses function
copmd), “MLT” (model life tables, uses function
mlt), “LogQuad” (log quadratic method, uses function
logquad), or “HIVmortmod” (HIV model life tables as implemented in the HIV.LifeTables package which can be installed from the PPgP/HIV.LifeTables GitHub repo).
If the mortality rates are to be projected via a blend of two methods (see
mortcast.blend), this column determines the second method. The options are the same as in the column
If one of the
AgeMortProjMethodX colums contains the “MLT” method, this column determines the type of the life table (see the argument
type in the
If the mortality rates are to be projected via a blend of two methods, this column determines the weights in the first and the last year of the projection, respectively. It should be given as an R vector, e.g. “c(1, 0.5)” (see the argument
Code determining how the “PMD” method should be adjusted if it's used. 0 means no adjustment, 1 means the argument
copmd is set to
TRUE, and code 3 means that the argument
copmd is set to
Indicator n for how many latest time periods should be used to compute the a_x Lee-Carter parameter. If n is zero, all time periods are used. If n is one, only the latest time period is used. If n is negative, the latest n time periods are excluded.
LatestAgeMortalityPattern is 1, this column indicates if the a_x should be smoothed.
Type of norm for computing age-specific fertility patern to which the country belongs to. Currently only “GlobalNorm” is used.
PasfrGlobalNorm, PasfrFarEastAsianNorm, PasfrSouthAsianNorm
Dummies indicating which country to include to compute the specific norms.
There is one record for each country. See Sevcikova et al (2015) on how information from the various columns is used for projections.
