Not exactly, slopop is already a ratetable, although the description says
"census data set for the Slovene population".
If I do:

[1] "ratetable"

I get class ratetable. It is not too difficult to construct a ratetable
from mortality data, but in case one is already available, I would use it.
It would be especially convenient to have one with a factor "contry" to be
used with international data.
