The Use of Actuarial Instruments


Starting this month we will be also offering periodic bonus mini in services. Today’s mini in service is on actuarial instruments.

Today I discuss actuarial instruments:

  • What they are
  • How they are used
  • What they predict
  • And provide 8 tips to ensure their proper use

An actuarial instrument is a statistical method of estimating the risk of a specific event occurring

These are widely used by insurance companies, such as in the case of auto insurance. They have also become a standard of practice in the sex offender industry to estimate the risk of sexual recidivism and are generally held as the most accurate method of predicting repeat sexual violence.
