class method_probs[source]#

Define “raw” (un-normalized, un-trended) matrices to give transitional probabilities from 2018 DHS Senegal contraceptive calendar data.

Probabilities in this function are annual probabilities of initiating (top row), discontinuing (first column), continuing (diagonal), or switching methods (all other entries).

Probabilities at postpartum month 1 are 1 month transitional probabilities for starting a method after delivery.

Probabilities at postpartum month 6 are 5 month transitional probabilities for starting or changing methods over the first 6 months postpartum.
