get.rege0.prediction {bayesLife}R Documentation

Accessing Subnational Prediction Objects

Description

Retrieve subnational (regional) prediction results produced by e0.predict.subnat, either for one country or for all available countries.

Usage

get.rege0.prediction(sim.dir, country = NULL, method = "ar1", joint.male = FALSE)

Arguments

sim.dir

Simulation directory of the subnational predictions. It corresponds to the argument output.dir in e0.predict.subnat.

country

Numerical country code. If it is not given, all available subnational predictions are retrieved.

method

Method used for generating the projections. It corresponds to the method argument in e0.predict.subnat.

joint.male

Logical. If TRUE, the function is applied to a male prediction that was generated using the joint female-male gap model implemented in the function e0.jmale.predict.subnat.

Details

Predictions for country x are assumed to be stored in “sim.dir/subnat_method/cx”.

Value

If argument country is given, the function returns an object of class bayesLife.prediction. If it is NULL, it returns a list of such objects. Names of the list items are the country codes.
