  • Presents mathematical details as well as technical material in an appendix
  • Includes real examples with applications in demography, econometrics, and epidemiology
  • Provides a dedicated R package, eha, containing special treatments, including making cuts in the Lexis diagram, creating communal covariates, and creating period statistics
