Open Actuarial Textbooks Project Goal
The goal is to have the actuarial community author our textbooks in a collaborative fashion. GitHub provides a natural development environment to achieve this goal. See the Open Actuarial Textbooks Project Site for more information about this project.
Loss Data Analytics
Loss Data Analytics is an interactive, online, freely available text.
- The online version contains many interactive objects (quizzes, computer demonstrations, interactive graphs, video, and the like) to promote deeper learning.
- A subset of the book is available for offline reading in pdf and EPUB formats.
- One day, we hope that the online text will be available in multiple languages to promote access to a worldwide audience.
An Open Book
An up to date version of the book is available in three formats:
- View the online version in .html format - this is the interactive version.
- Download a pdf version
- Download a EPUB version
Archived versions are also available in pdf format.
R Codes for Loss Data Analytics
- You can get practice executing R code at our Online Version R Code Site. This site provides files that generate R codes to support the online text Loss Data Analytics.
- Data are also available. Click individual files and hit the “Raw” button to download the raw data, not an html version.
- Source code is available at our GitHub site.
Another site is available for authors, reviewers, and others interested in the project development, our Open Actuarial Textbooks Development Site. This site contains:
- A Style Guide for prospective contributors
- This site provides chapter summaries in the form of overheads to support the online text Loss Data Analytics. Overheads in .pdf format and source code is available at a development GitHub site.
- We are also starting to organize several sets of notes for Life Contingencies, also known as Actuarial Mathematics and Long Term Actuarial Mathematics. See the development GitHub Site.
- We are also experimenting with a WordPress site.
- Your contributions are very much welcomed!
As described in our License, anyone can use these files. Especially at this early stage of the project, if you want to help and would like more info, please write Jed Frees firstname.lastname@example.org.
