Research Projects – Life Insurance
The Committee on Life Insurance Research is pleased to make the following report available. Authored by Donald F. Behan and Samuel H. Cox (University of Manitoba), along with a team of four contributing coauthors, this report looks at the total economic costs of overweight (BMI between 25.0-29.9) and obesity (BMI of 30 and above) in the U.S. and Canada. While much research has been conducted on obesity, the SOA study covers the economic costs of overweight and obesity caused by increased need for medical care, and loss of economic productivity resulting from excess mortality and disability.
