## BLC: Forecasting

### Description

Calculates the means and variances of the forecast distributions based on the resulting chains from an estimation method.

### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'BLC'
predict(object, h, ...)
```

### Arguments

`object` |
A |

`h` |
The prediction horizon. |

`...` |
Other arguments. |

### Value

A `PredBLC`

object that contains a list with predicted values calculated
from `BLC`

object chains structured in an array.

### See Also

`fitted.BLC()`

, `print.BLC()`

, and `plot.PredBLC()`

for `PredBLC`

methods to native R functions `fitted()`

,
`print()`

, and `plot()`

.

`expectancy.BLC()`

and Heatmap.BLC to compute and plot the life expectancy of the prediction(s).

### Examples

```
## Importing log-mortality data from Portugal:
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)
print(pred)
```
