# Load simulated data as example

# Estimate remaining life expectancy and Life Years
# Lost due to specific causes of death after each age
# from 30 to 40 years and before age 95 years

                             age_begin = 30, age_end = 40, tau = 95)

# Summarize and plot the data
plot(lyl_estimation, colors = c("chocolate", "cornflowerblue"))

# The plot can be modified with a usual ggplot2 format
