actLifer: Creating Actuarial Life Tables

Contains data and functions that can be used to make actuarial life tables. Each function adds a column to the inputted dataset for each intermediate calculation between mortality rate and life expectancy. Users can run any of our functions to complete the life table until that step, or run lifetable() to output a full life table that can be customized to remove optional columns. Methods for creating lifetables are as described in Zedstatistics (2021) <>.
