coarseDataTools: Analysis of Coarsely Observed Data

Functions to analyze coarse data. Specifically, it contains functions to (1) fit parametric accelerated failure time models to interval-censored survival time data, and (2) estimate the case-fatality ratio in scenarios with under-reporting. This package's development was motivated by applications to infectious disease: in particular, problems with estimating the incubation period and the case fatality ratio of a given disease. Sample data files are included in the package. See Reich et al. (2009) <doi:10.1002/sim.3659>, Reich et al. (2012) <doi:10.1111/j.1541-0420.2011.01709.x>, and Lessler et al. (2009) <doi:10.1016/S1473-3099(09)70069-6>.
