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.
