Automobile UK Collision Claims

Share:

Description

This data is due to Mildenhall (1999). Mildenhall (1999) considered 8,942 collision losses from private passenger United Kingdom (UK) automobile insurance policies. The data were derived from Nelder and McCullagh (1989, Section 8.4.1) but originated from Baxter et al. (1980). We consider here a sample of n = 32 of Mildenhall data for eight driver types (age groups) and four vehicle classes (vehicle use). The average severity is in pounds sterling adjusted for inflation.
