An Estimation of Loss Ratio Based on Empirical Bayes Credibility Lee, Kang Sup; Lee, Hee Chun;
It has been pointed out that the classical credibility model used in Korea since the beginning of 1990's lacks in objectiveness. Recently, in order to improve objectiveness, the empirical Bayes credibility model utilizing general exposure units like the number of claims and premium has been employed, but that model itself is not quite applicable in the country like Korea whose annual and classified empirical data are not well accumulated and even varied severely. In this article, we propose a new and better model, Based on the new model, we estimate both credibility and loss ratio of each class for fire insurance plans by Korean insurance companies. As a conclusion, we empirically make sure analysis that the number of claims is a more reasonable exposure unit than premium.
