The pyears() and survexp() routines in the survival package are designed for these calculations.

I am looking for R  example codes to compute age-standardized death rates by smoking and psychological distress status using person-years of observation created from the National Health Interview Survey Linked Mortality Files.  Any help with the example codes or references will be appreciated.
