Let the observation vector X have independent components, which — up to some weighting — have the same conditional distribution F& given  = &. We look at the family of possible marginal distributions F = {F& : & 5 }. In insurance practice, the specification of the family F is in itself a problem. Sometimes, there are indications about which families might be appropriate.

0 =  + n j=1 x0 The Bayes estimator for  is therefore given by e = E [|X] =  +n ³ ´. 40) can be written in another, more easily interpretable form. e. the estimator that one might use if we only had data and no a priori information.
