Deviation is A-E and then standardised deviation is A−E √ E If there is a sufficient number of independent lives at each age x , by central limit theorem, we have, under all our models: 14/72 the standardised deviation zx ∼ Normal (0, 1) x = x1 , x2 , · · · , xm the zx ’s at different ages are mutually independent Actuarial Statistics – Module 8: Method of Graduation Statistical tests Preliminaries Standardised deviations under Poisson model Under the Poisson model, we have for each x : Number of Deaths: o o c c Dx ∼ Normal Ex µx + 1 , Ex µx + 1 2 2 Deviation at age x=Ax − Ex o c dx − Ex µx + 1 2 x Standardised deviation at age x= A√−Ex : E x o zx = 15/72 c dx − Ex µx + 1 2 co Ex µx + 1 2 Actuarial Statistics – Module 8: Method of Graduation Statistical tests Preliminaries Standardised deviations under binomial model In the binomial model, Actual-Expected at age x: o dx − Ex q x Standardised Deviation at age x: o zx = dx − Ex q x o o Ex q x (1 − q x ) 16/72 (1) Actuarial Statistics – Module 8: Method of Graduation Statistical tests Preliminaries Example The standardised deviation at age 30 based on following extract of a graduation: o x Ex dx qx ˆ qx 30 70,000 39 0.000557 0.000460 is o z30 = d30 − E30 q 30 o o E30 q 30 (1 − q 30 ) = 17/72 39 − 70, 000(0.000460) 70, 000 × 0.000460(1 − 0.000460) = 1.2 Actuarial Statistics – Module 8: Method of Graduation Statistical tests Chi-square (χ2 ) test 1 Introduction 2 Testing smoothness 3 Statistical tests Preliminaries Chi-square (χ2 ) test Standardised Deviations Test Signs test Cumulative Deviations Test Grouping of Signs Test Serial Correlations Test 4 Methods of graduation Preliminaries Graduation by Parametric Formula...
