Percentile

Summarize differences in Life Years Lost.

lyl_diff summarizes differences in estimated Life Years Lost in two different populations: lyl_estimation compared to lyl_estimation0.

Usage
lyl_diff(lyl_population1, lyl_population0, decimals = 2, level = 0.95,
  weights = NA)
Arguments
lyl_population1

Population of interest: An object of class lyl or lyl_range (obtained with functions lyl or lyl_range). Alternatively, an object of class lyl_ci can be provided for bootstrapped confidence intervals.

lyl_population0

Reference population: An object of class lyl or lyl_range (obtained with functions lyl or lyl_range). Alternatively, an object of class lyl_ci can be provided for bootstrapped confidence intervals.

decimals

Number of decimals to be reported (default is 2).

level

Confidence level if lyl_population1 or lyl_population0 is obtained with the lyl_ci function (default is 0.95 for 95% confidence intervals)

weights

Vector with age distribution of disease/condition onset to be used when Life Years Lost are estimated over a range of ages (with lyl_range function). If weights are not provided (dafault is weights = NA), then the differences in Life Years Lost at each age is provided. If weights are provided, then a weighted average is provided.

Value

A table with the summary of the differences between two populations.
