2016 Edition of the OECD Global Insurance Market Trends Report
Since the early 1980s, the OECD has collected and analyzed data on insurance in OECD countries. Since 2008, the Global Insurance Statistics project has extended the global reach of the database and expanded the data collected which now includes not only the number of insurance companies and employees, insurance premiums and investments by insurance companies, but also key balance sheet and income statement items for the direct insurance and reinsurance sectors.
The report is published as a complement to the OECD’s comprehensive insurance statistics database . Over time, it will be extended to cover additional countries and other aspects of insurance and reinsurance.
