The International Actuarial Association Mortality Working Group (IAAMWG) has published its first report.
The IAAMWG is a group of volunteers who study mortality and monitor studies completed by other organisations worldwide, focusing on the impact on insurance products (including life, pension and living benefits) or on government or world organisation (such as WHO and the UN) sponsored programs. Mortality experience studies of general populations, insured life and other population subsets are within in the scope of the MWG.
The group maintains an information base on mortality and meets six-monthly to progress its own research. The group’s first report, which is being made available to actuarial associations worldwide, is now available here.
