PRIMA/PERI Cost of Risk Survey

 

The cost of risk survey gathered data on property and casualty trends from public entities in 48 states for 2005. The survey was conducted in 2006. The results are presented in the PERI/PRIMA Cost of Risk Survey Report and show that risk management practices have increased in importance within public entities. The comprehensive report offers an interesting glimpse into how risk management budgets are spent and the most commonly used cost cutting measures among public entities.
