Hail-loss experience on tobacco crop in Darlington County·/ South Carolina, United States The annual loss-cost data relating to tobacco crop insurance in Darlington County of South Carolina, United States, are given in Appendix 2, Table 2. 80. The coefficient of variation was 97 per cent, which is the highest among the different cases so far analysed. A frequency distribution curve drawn on the basis of these data becomes rather complex (Fig. 12) with a long tail at the right indicating a series of high values, and it is the farthest from the normal curve of error.

A country or »even a province and its subdivisions like counties, parishes and communes. As will be seen presently, premium rates are often determined according to small areas based upon their respective loss experiences. Many of the inconsistencies of nature arise from a short-term view.

Indeed, the greater the temporal spread the greater the tendency of the probable occurrence in future to approximate to the mean of the previous occurrences.

In France, for example, as early as 1859 M. 8 As thefloodhazard also is often likely to be of devastating nature, there is an obvious need for the maximum possible spread ofrisksboth over time and space, and also for its combining with other natural hazards. 5 Bubolz, G. , Bulletin No. 21, Feb. 1938, p. iii. 6 Langbein, W. , Nov. 1953), p. 326. 7 See Watford's Insurance Cyclopaedia, 6, p. 186. *Agric. , 19 (Feb. 1957), p. 83.
