Intial distributions of empowerment attributes based on latest DHS data <YYYY> TODO: perhaps split into single functions, one per attribute? TODO: update docstring for empowerment_distributions NOTE: DHS data covers the age group from 15 to 49 (inclusive). In this function we interpolate data to reduce noise and extrapolate to cover the age range (0, 100). Interpolation is done using a piecewise linear approximation with an inflexion point on
