causalPAF: Causal Effect for Population Attributable Fractions (PAF)

Calculates population attributable fraction causal effects. The 'causalPAF' package contains a suite of functions for causal analysis calculations of population attributable fractions (PAF) given a causal diagram which apply both: Pathway-specific population attributable fractions (PS-PAFs) O’Connell and Ferguson (2022) <doi:10.1093/ije/dyac079> and Sequential population attributable fractions Ferguson, O’Connell, and O’Donnell (2020) <doi:10.1186/s13690-020-00442-x>. Results are presentable in both table and plot format.
