A new version of the R-package SPADE.RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment
is released (version 3.2). This version contains a patch to a special case: the modelling of daily intakes where some intakes are equal to zero. In the previous version, all intakes were accidentally shifted by a small positive amount (half the smallest positive intake) instead of just the zeroes intakes. Further, some minor changes improved the performance of SPADE.
The manual is changed, the results of the scripts of the exercises on page 173, 174 and 190 contain lower percentiles (about 3-3.3 mcg) than the ones before.
