Default Bug#515641: ITP: r-cran-epi -- GNU R epidemiological analysis

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tillea@rki.de>


* Package name : r-cran-epi
Version : 1.0.8
Upstream Author : Bendix Carstensen <bxc at steno.dk>
* URL : http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/
* License : GPL2+
Programming Lang: R
Description : GNU R epidemiological analysis
Functions for demographic and epidemiological analysis in the Lexis diagram,
i.e. register and cohort follow-up data, including interval censored data and
representation of multistate data. Also some useful functions for tabulation
and plotting. Contains some epidemiological datasets.
.
The Epi package is mainly focused on "classical" chronic disease epidemiology.
The package has grown out of the course Statistical Practice in Epidemiology
using R (see http://www.pubhealth.ku.dk/~bxc/SPE).
.
There is A short introduction to R for Epidemiology available at
http://staff.pubhealth.ku.dk/%7Ebxc/Epi/R-intro.pdf
Beware that the pages 38-120 of this is merely the manual pages for the Epi
package.
.
Epi is not the only R-package for epidemiological analysis, a package with
more affinity to infectious disease epidemiology is the epitools package
which is also evailable in Debian.
.
Epi is used in the Department of Biostatistics of the University of Copenhagen.
