SocEpi: Health Inequality Analysis

Tools for calculating deprivation measures and analysing health outcomes and mortality by deprivation. Included are the functions: zscore() and w_pcntile() for developing deprivation measures and the functions smr(), st_rate() and rii() for calculating standardized mortality ratios, direct standardized rates and Slope and Relative indices of Inequality (SII and RII). Test data is included (dep_data and health_data). The RII/SII are calculated following Pamuk ER (1985) <doi:10.1080/0032472031000141256>. The confidence intervals for SII/RII are calculated using a multinomial distribution as described in Lumme et al (2015) <doi:10.1007/s10742-015-0137-1>.
