We have developed a collection of open source R packages implementing our methods:
dembase - general-purpose tools for demographic analysis
demest - Bayesian statistical methods for demography
demlife - creating and working with life tables
demdata - general-purpose example datasets for demography
bdefdata - example datasets for the applications in Bayesian demographic estimation and forecasting.
We have not yet put the packages on the standard R repository CRAN. For the time being, you will need to install them directly from GitHub. To do this, you will need to install the R package devtools from CRAN. Then run the following code:
The reason we have not yet put the packages on CRAN is that we are still modifying the interface and adding functionality.
