Miscellaneous utility functions for demogdata type mortality data
Description
This function can extract any subset of the source data, such as the mortality (hazard) rates and population (exposure), by a given vector of ages and calendar years. Similarly, the function can output the observed number of deaths by age and calendar years, based on the source data sets included in the demogdata
object.
Usage
1 2 
Arguments
data 

what 
specifies the required type of data matrix to be extracted 
ages 
vector of ages to inspect in the data 
years 
vector of years to inspect in the data 
series 
target series name (e.g. 'males') or index number (e.g. 1) of the data object to be extracted 
Details
A subset of mortality rates and population (exposures) can be directly inspected (i.e. extracted) from the corresponding component data matrices in the source demogdata
object by using this function. To inspect the observed number of deaths by age and calendar years the function calls extract.deaths
without data corrections.
Value
Returns a subset data matrix of the source data.
