## Large claims, and ratemaking

February 13, 2013
By
$Y$

During the course, we have seen that it is natural to assume that not only the individual claims frequency can be explained by some covariates, but individual costs too. Of course, appropriate families should be considered to model the distribution of the cost , given some covariates .Here is the dataset we’ll use, > sinistre=read.table("http://freakonometrics.free.fr/sinistreACT2040.txt", + header=TRUE,sep=";") > sinistres=sinistre...

## Unknown Variance Two-Tailed Test of Population Mean

February 11, 2013
By

Question The mean safety audit score of ACME Co. stores in New York (n=200) was 74.3pts February last year.  Suppose we decided to sample 22 out of the 200 stores one year later. We find that the sample mean is 78.6pts and the sample standard deviation is 3.2pts.  Can we reject the null hypothesis that

## Exposure with binomial responses

February 9, 2013
By
$N_i$

Last week, we’ve seen how to take into account the exposure to compute nonparametric estimators of several quantities (empirical means, and empirical variances) incorporating exposure. Let us see what can be done if we want to model a binomial response. The model here is the following: , the number of claims  on the period  is unobserved the number of...

## Learning R Using a Chemical Reaction Engineering Book: Part 4

$Learning R Using a Chemical Reaction Engineering Book: Part 4$

The links to previous parts are listed here. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). In this part, I tried to recreate the examples in sections A.3.1 of the computational appendix in the reaction engineering book (by Rawlings and Ekerdt). Solving a … Continue reading →

## Pills, half pills and probabilities

Yesterday, I was uploading some old posts to complete the migration (I get back to my old posts, one by one, to check links of pictures, reformating R codes, etc). And I re-discovered a post published amost 2 years ago, on nuns and Hell’s Angels in an airplaine. It reminded me an old probability problem (that might be known...

Deliverance!!! We have at last completed our book! Bayesian Essentials with R is off my desk! In a final nitty-gritty day of compiling and recompiling the R package bayess and the LaTeX file, we have reached versions that were in par with our expectations. The package has been submitted to CRAN (it has gone back

## Collinearity and stepwise VIF selection

February 5, 2013
By
$Collinearity and stepwise VIF selection$

Collinearity, or excessive correlation among explanatory variables, can complicate or prevent the identification of an optimal set of explanatory variables for a statistical model. For example, forward or backward selection of variables could produce inconsistent results, variance partitioning analyses may be unable to identify unique sources of variation, or parameter estimates may include substantial amounts

## Natura non facit saltus

$\mathbb{E}_{\mathbb{P}}\left(\sum_{i=1}^N Y_i\right)=\mathbb{E}_{\mathbb{P}}(N) \cdot \mathbb{E}_{\mathbb{P}}(Y_i)$

(see John Wilkins’ article on the – interesting – history of that phrase http://scienceblogs.com/evolvingthoughts/…). We will see, this week in class, several smoothing techniques, for insurance ratemaking. As a starting point, assume that we do not want to use segmentation techniques: everyone will pay exactly the same price. no segmentation of the premium And that price should be related to...

## Tables from R into Word

A good looking table matters! This tutorial is on how to create a neat table in Word by combining knitr and R Markdown. I'll be using my own function, htmlTable, from the Gmisc package. Background: Because most journals that I submit to want...

## Proposed techniques for communicating the amount of information contained in a statistical result

$Proposed techniques for communicating the amount of information contained in a statistical result$

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about how much we can expect to learn about the state of the world on the basis of a statistical significance test. One way of framing this question is: if we’re trying to come to scientific conclusions on the basis of statistical results, how much can we update
