Does anyone have a cheat sheet for selecting target distribution and link function?
I'm having a bit of trouble determining what Target Distribution and Link Function are applicable in each situation. If anyone has a cheat sheet that they can share, it would be extremely helpful for me.

I hope this table helps. Users of the ACTEX PA manual will receive a comprehensive cheat sheet next week.

These questions tend have two parts 1. What is the best choice of response distribution. 2. What is the best choice of link function. This is the way that the mean of the response distribution is related to the linear predictor. Here's a table that will help on Chapter 12.2 of our Study Manual. What combinations are possible? Normal and Inverse link? Gamma and log link? Normal and Identity link? Normal and inverse squared link? Our Health Costs Practice Exam has several examples. This is also covered in our 11 pages of Cheat Sheets.

It will be released together with the second practice exam and posted on actuariallearning.com.
