American Journal of Agricultural Economics, 1998, vol. 80, issue 1, 139-153
We use nonparametric density estimation procedures to evaluate county-level crop yield distributions. Implications for rating area-yield crop insurance contracts are discussed. The procedures developed are used to measure yield risk and calculate insurance premium rates for wheat and barley in the 1995–96 Group Risk Program. Copyright 1998, Oxford University Press.
