Actuarial Statistics (CS1)

Core Practices

The aim of Actuarial Statistics (CS1) is to provide a grounding in mathematical and statistical methods that are of relevance for actuarial work. It equips the student with knowledge of statistical distributions, methods to summarise data, the principles of statistical inference, regression models (including generalised linear models) and the fundamental concepts of Bayesian statistics.  The subject includes both theory and application of the ideas using R.  

Subject CS2 builds directly on the material in this subject. Material in this subject is applied to actuarial modelling in subjects CM1 and CM2.
