Description

Standard example in worker's compensation insurance, examining losses due to permanent, partial disability claims. The data are from Klugman (1992), who considers Bayesian model representations, and are originally from the National Council on Compensation Insurance. We consider n=121 occupation, or risk, classes, over T=7 years. To protect the data source, further information on the occupation classes and years is not available. Source: Frees, E.
