95% of statistics are 75% made up

February 16, 2013 in General

Thanks to my pal Rob K. for the title of this post, and I totally made the numbers up, by the way. Because this is a blog and not a <heavy sarcasm>highly respected news organization like Fox News, which assiduously checks facts and figures before reporting</heavy sarcasm>, I can say whatever I like to fit my theme. (Thanks Lara FW for demonstrating the proper usage of the sarcasm tag on FB last week. You’ll notice I totally ripped you off paid homage to your cleverness.)

Statistics: How to calculate an insurance risk premium?

November 1, 2012 in Fire insurance

A customer for a $90,000 fire insurance policy possesses a home in an area which, according to experience, may sustain a total loss in a given year with probability or 0.001, and a 50% loss with probability 0.01. Ignoring all other partial losses, what premium should the insurance company charge for a yearly policy to make 10% above the break even point?

Thanks for the help!

I need help coming up with examples for each of the following statistics (relating to mortgages):?

September 20, 2012 in Insurance jobs and educations

Give an example (each): Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, and Ratio Data

This is what I’ve come up with for examples, but not sure if they really work?
Nominal: Loan programs (such as 30 year fix, 15 year fix, etc.)
Ordinal: Loan Office, Underwriter, Processor, and Closer
Interval: Loan amounts

That’s what I’ve come up with so far, but do they make sense? What about for the rest?

Shocking Housing Statistics- What You Should Know Before Buying a House.

June 28, 2012 in Insurance Agent


I just saw some shocking housing statistics from Real Estate website Zillow revealing what you SHOULD know when buying a house. 0:03 Zillow just released results of a survey taken by first time homebuyers that revealed some shocking results of how knowledgeable they are about the house buying process. Now all you Realtors watching this, you may want to give your clients some home buying tips that can teach them what to know before buying a house. 47% believed that the home became theirs once everyone signed the purchase contract. and 42% believe that home values are guaranteed to appreciate by about 7% each year, when in reality, in a normal market it’s typically 2-5% each year, and we all know, we are NOT in a normal market right now. 41% of all new homebuyers believe they need to pay for private mortgage insurance, regardless of how much of a downpayment they’re making, when in reality, that’s typically true if you’re putting less than 20% down. And finally 37% of first time homebuyers believe buying homeowner’s insurance is optional. I’m here to tell you it’s not. That’s why every realtor, mortgage broker and insurance agent needs to take time to make sure our clients are aware of what to know when buying a home.

If Obama claims to have created 2 million jobs and the Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows 1.9 million loss?

March 17, 2012 in Insurance jobs and educations

Who is right?

In February 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that 141.7 million people were employed. By the end of May 2011 – the last month for which data are available – that number had fallen to 139.8 million, a difference of 1.9 million.

While the number of people with jobs has increased slightly from its low point during the recession – 137.9 million in December 2009 – those 1.9 million jobs have been lost despite $800 billion in stimulus spending.

Need help with Statistics ASAP!?

A SRS of 20 automobiles of varying makes and models were chosen to try out a new mixture
of unleaded gasoline. The investigators would like to see if the new mixture results in lower pollution
emissions than their current mixture. Each auto was randomly assigned to one of the two mixtures by a coin toss and 2.5 gallons of the appropriate type of fuel was added to the tank and the cars were run on an instrument to measure the emissions until all of the fuel was gone. Immediately following the 1st run an identical amount of the other fuel was added and the experiment was repeated. To complete the study the investigators would use:
A) Paired t-test
B) Hypothesis test for the difference between two means
C) Hypothesis test for population mean
D) Hypothesis test for population proportion
E) CI for the difference between two population proportions
