OECD’s annual publication shows official insurance statistics for all OECD countries including data on premiums collected, claims, and commissions by type of insurance; investments by type of investment; and numbers of companies and employees. Data for Singapore, which has an observer status to the OECD Insurance and Private Pensions Committee, are included in the online and CD-ROM editions of this publication. The data, which are standardised as far as possible, are broken down under numerous sub-headings, and a series of indicators makes the characteristics of the national markets more readily comprehensible.

Hide / Show Abstract

The insurance industry is a key component of the economy by virtue of the amount of premiums it collects, the scale of its investment and, more fundamentally, the essential social and economic role it plays in covering personal and business risks.

This annual publication provides major official insurance statistics for all OECD countries. The reader will find information on the diverse activities of this industry and on international insurance market trends.

For the first time an analytical chapter including data from OECD members and selected additional economies has been included. This additional chapter highlights the underlying reasons for the trends in gross premium growth and claims developments between 2010 and 2011, and presents key performance indicators.

The data, which are standardised as far as possible, are broken down under numerous sub-headings, and a series of indicators makes the characteristics of the national markets more readily comprehensible. This publication is an essential tool for civil servants, professionals and academics working in the insurance field.

The data in this publication are also available on the OECD iLibrary under the title OECD Insurance Statistics (http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/ins-data-en).

    Executive summary

    The OECD has been collecting insurance statistics for over fifteen years, with data on the insurance sector dating back to the early 1980s. In response to the financial crisis, a Global Insurance Statistics (GIS) project was launched as part of the OECD’s insurance market monitoring activities. The main objectives were to expand the scope of the OECD’s statistical framework for insurance and extend its global reach, with a view to enhancing transparency. These changes led to the collection of key balance sheet and income statement items for the direct insurance and reinsurance sectors, and to the gradual global expansion of the OECD’s Global Insurance Statistics Database.
