popEpi: Functions for Epidemiological Analysis using Population Data

Enables computation of epidemiological statistics, including those where counts or mortality rates of the reference population are used. Currently supported: excess hazard models (Dickman, Sloggett, Hills, and Hakulinen (2012) <doi:10.1002/sim.1597>), rates, mean survival times, relative/net survival (in particular the Ederer II (Ederer and Heise (1959)) and Pohar Perme (Pohar Perme, Stare, and Esteve (2012) <doi:10.1111/j.1541-0420.2011.01640.x>) estimators), and standardized incidence and mortality ratios, all of which can be easily adjusted for by covariates such as age. Fast splitting and aggregation of 'Lexis' objects (from package 'Epi') and other computations achieved using 'data.table'.
