Abstract:

The popular beta-binomial approach to credibility offers an attractive way of combining the results of experience and risk rating. However, when applied to a particular age the information available from surrounding ages is ignored. In this paper I propose an augmentation to the beta-binomial approach which not only allows for the information contained in ages near to the age under analysis, but also for variation in risk types across the different ages.
