Methods for BootChainLadder objects

Description

summary, print, mean, and quantile methods for BootChainLadder objects

Usage

## S3 method for class 'BootChainLadder'
summary(object, probs=c(0.75,0.95), ...)

## S3 method for class 'BootChainLadder'
print(x, probs=c(0.75,0.95), ...)

## S3 method for class 'BootChainLadder'
quantile(x, probs=c(0.75, 0.95), na.rm = FALSE,
              names = TRUE, type = 7,...)

## S3 method for class 'BootChainLadder'
mean(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'BootChainLadder'
residuals(object, ...)

Arguments

x, object

output from BootChainLadder

probs

numeric vector of probabilities with values in [0,1], see quantile for more help

na.rm

logical; if true, any NA and NaN's are removed from 'x' before the quantiles are computed, see quantile for more help

names

logical; if true, the result has a names attribute. Set to FALSE for speedup with many 'probs', see quantile for more help

type

an integer between 1 and 9 selecting one of the nine quantile algorithms detailed below to be used, see quantile

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods

Details

print.BootChainLadder calls summary.BootChainLadder and prints a formatted version of the summary. residuals.BootChainLadder gives the residual triangle of the expected chain-ladder minus the actual triangle back.

Value

summary.BootChainLadder, mean.BootChainLadder, and quantile.BootChainLadder, give a list with two elements back:

ByOrigin

data frame with summary/mean/quantile statistics by origin period

Totals

data frame with total summary/mean/quantile statistics for all origin period
