AgeSpecific_Hazards: Age-specific hazard rate dataset

Description Usage Format Details References

Description

A dataset that contains age-specific hazard rates to roughly mimic: (1) the age-specific hazard rates for lymphoid cancer in the United States, (2) the age-specific hazard rates for death in the United States, and (3) the age-specific hazard rates for death for individuals, living in the United States, who have been diagnosed with a lymphoid cancer.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 100 rows and 3 variables:

pop_onset_hazard

The age-specific population hazard rate for lymphoid cancer

unaffected_death_hazard

The age-specific hazard rate for death in the unaffected population

affected_death_hazard

The age-specific hazard rate for death in the affected population

Details

The AgeSpecific_Hazards dataset contains age-specific hazard rates which roughly mimic: (1) the age-specific hazard rates for lymphoid cancer onset in the United States, (2) the age-specific hazard rates for death in the United States, and (3) the age-specific hazard rates for death for individuals, living in the United States, who have been diagnosed with a lymphoid cancer. The age-specific hazard rates of lymphoid cancer onset and death in the affected population may be estimated by a program such as the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program (SEER), and the age-specific hazard rates of death in the United States may be estimated from actuarial life tables provided by the Social Security Administration.

The three columns in the AgeSpecific_Hazards dataset provide age-specific hazard rates, in yearly increments, beginning at age 0 and ending with age 100. That is, the values in the first row describe the hazard rates for an individual whose age is contained in the interval [0, 1), while the values in the second row describe the hazard rates for an individual whose age is contained in the interval [1, 2), and so on.
