DHS.rates: Calculates Demographic Indicators

Calculates key indicators such as fertility rates (Total Fertility Rate (TFR), General Fertility Rate (GFR), and Age Specific Fertility Rate (ASFR)) using Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) women/individual data, and childhood mortality probabilities and rates such as Neonatal Mortality Rate (NNMR), Post-neonatal Mortality Rate (PNNMR), Infant Mortality Rate (IMR), Child Mortality Rate (CMR), and Under-five Mortality Rate (U5MR). In addition to the indicators, the 'DHS.rates' package estimates sampling errors indicators such as Standard Error (SE), Design Effect (DEFT), Relative Standard Error (RSE) and Confidence Interval (CI). The package is developed according to the DHS methodology of calculating the fertility indicators and the childhood mortality rates outlined in the "Guide to DHS Statistics" (Croft, Trevor N., Aileen M. J. Marshall, Courtney K. Allen, et al. 2018, <https://dhsprogram.com/Data/Guide-to-DHS-Statistics/index.cfm>) and the DHS methodology of estimating the sampling errors indicators outlined in the "DHS Sampling and Household Listing Manual" (ICF International 2012, <https://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/DHSM4/DHS6_Sampling_Manual_Sept2012_DHSM4.pdf>).
