Thanks to Kit Baum, a program -lxpct_2- is now available from SSC. This 
program calculates multistate life expectancies from a dataset of age-
specific transition probabilities. Applications of the method range 
from the calculation of healthy life expenctancy to the study of 
childhood exposure to poverty.

I am in the process of correcting the help file which lost formating in 
the conversion of file types, but a properly formated help file and a 
link to more detailed examples can be found at the following page:
The examples are described in reference to an earlier version of the 
program; however, they remain applicable to -lexpct_2- (with the minor 
changes to the input syntax that are noted in the help file). 

This is my first program post to the list, so please do contact me with 
any questions or suggestions.
