Determining which N-year (e.g. 5-year) age groups two vectors have in common is helpful for matching vector lengths, and questions of alignment. Used as a utility throughout.

AGEN( Age1, Age2, N = 5, consecutive = TRUE, ageMin = 0, ageMax = max(c(Age1, Age2)) )

Age1 | integer. Vector of first age groups (lower bounds). |
---|---|

Age2 | integer. Vector of second age groups (lower bounds). |

N | integer. Target age group interval (just one number). |

consecutive | logical. Whether or not to throw error if resulting age groups not consecutive. Default |

ageMin | integer. Optional lower age bound for output. |

ageMax | integer. Optional upper age bound for output. |

Integer vector of the N-year age groups present in both `Age1`

and `Age2`

.
