elect: Estimation of Life Expectancies Using Multi-State Models

Functions to compute state-specific and marginal life expectancies. The computation is based on a fitted continuous-time multi-state model that includes an absorbing death state; see Van den Hout (2017, ISBN:9781466568402). The fitted multi-state model model should be estimated using the 'msm' package using age as the time-scale.
