Socioeconomic Mortality Tables in Belgium, organised by AG Insurance - 18/01/2024 (2 CPD)

Dear IA|BE member,

On Thursday 18 January 2024, professors Jeroen Kerkhof and Steven Vanduffel (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) will present their research on 'Socioeconomic Mortality Tables for Belgium' at an IA|BE-accredited event at the AG Campus (2 CPD points).

Would you like to be there? Don't delay, sign up today!

What is it about?

The standard Belgian mortality tables (IA|BE, FPB) differentiate only by gender. Professors Kerkhof and Vanduffel changed this by introducing socio-economic status into the mortality tables. This included calculating the impact of income, education, occupational sector and occupational status, respectively. Moreover, the household situation (marital status, education level of the partner, etc.) was also studied in detail.

Do you want to know exactly how they went about it? And what impact does this have on risk management in the insurance sector, among other things?
