The open source HPCC Systems platform is a proven, easy to use solution for managing data at scale. Visit our Easy Guide to learn more about this completely free platform, test drive some code in the online Playground, and get started today.

The book Computational Actuarial Science, with R is officially out. In the introduction of the book, and on the website of CRC, it is mentioned that the datasets can be found “in an R package on CRAN“, which is unfortunately incorrect. Some datasets are too large, so the package can not be uploaded on CRAN. Hopefully, Christophe host the package on his website.

Insurance datasets

A collection of datasets, originally for the book ‘Computational Actuarial Science with R’ edited by Arthur Charpentier (CAS with R). Now, the package contains a large variety of actuarial datasets.
