## BLC: Arithmetic mean for predictions

### Description

Calculates the means based on the resulting chains from a predicted year.

### Usage

## S3 method for class 'PredBLC'
mean(x, h, ...)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
A |

`h` |
A positive integer specifying the year in the prediction horizon to be calculated. |

`...` |
Further arguments passed to or from other methods. |

### Value

A vector with the mean values of the log-mortality chains.

### See Also

for `BLC`

object method.

### Examples

```
data(PT)
Y <- PT
## Fitting the model
fit = blc(Y = Y, M = 100, bn = 20)
## Prediction for 2 years ahead
pred = predict(fit, h = 2)
mean(pred, 1)
mean(pred, 2)
```
