mrc-ide/demogsurv: Demographic analysis of DHS and other household surveys

This package includes tools for calculating demographic indicators from household survey data. Initially developed for for processing and analysis from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS). The package provides tools to calculate standard child mortality, adult mortality, and fertility indicators stratified arbitrarily by age group, calendar period, pre-survey time periods, birth cohorts and other survey variables (e.g. residence, region, wealth status, education, etc.). Design-based standard errors and sample correlations are available for all indicators via Taylor linearisation or jackknife.
