Computer programs to calculate single life (x) actuarial present values
Computer programs to calculate single life (x) actuarial present values, using a life table
FIRST COMPUTER PROGRAM
The computer program below will calculate and display the APV of an nyear temporary immediate life annuity, with a discount factor of v, of 1 per year payable once a year for (x) for the values x=z up to and including x=h, in steps of 1, using a life table in the form of x=xlowest up to and including x=xhighest, in steps of 1, with corresponding lx values l(xlowest), l(xlowest+1),…, l(xhighest1) and l(xhighest).
With v equal to 1, the resulting APV will have the same numerical value as the curtate life expectancy.
Provided l(xhighest)=0, a high enough value for n will result in a whole life APV being calculated.
10 INPUT xlowest,xhighest
20 DIM l(xhighest)
30 FOR x=xlowest TO xhighest
40 INPUT l(x)
50 NEXT x
60 INPUT z,h
70 INPUT n,v
80 FOR x=z TO h
90 IF n>xhighestx THEN n=xhighestx
100 ANSWER=0
110 FOR r=1 TO n
120 ANSWER=ANSWER+v^r*l(x+r)
130 NEXT r
140 ANSWER=ANSWER/l(x)
150 PRINT x;” “;ANSWER
160 NEXT x
170 GOTO 60
SECOND COMPUTER PROGRAM
The computer program below will calculate the following four APVs and display them in this order;
APV of an nyear temporary life annuity due, with a discount factor of v, of 1 per year payable once a year for (x)
APV of an endowment insurance, with a discount factor of v, of 1, where the death benefit is payable at the end of the year of death for (x), provided this occurs within n years
APV of a death benefit, with a discount factor of v, of 1 payable at the end of the year of death for (x), provided this occurs within n years
APV of a pure endowment, with a discount factor of v, of 1 payable after n years as long as (x) is still alive then
for the values x=z up to and including x=h, in steps of 1, using a life table in the form of x=xlowest up to and including x=xhighest, in steps of 1, with corresponding lx values l(xlowest), l(xlowest+1),…, l(xhighest1) and l(xhighest).
Provided l(xhighest)=0, a high enough value for n will result in a whole life APV being calculated.
10 INPUT xlowest,xhighest
20 DIM l(xhighest)
30 FOR x=xlowest TO xhighest
40 INPUT l(x)
50 NEXT x
60 INPUT z,h
70 INPUT n,v
80 FOR x=z TO h
90 IF n>xhighestx THEN n=xhighestx
100 ANSWER=0
110 FOR r=0 TO n1
120 ANSWER=ANSWER+v^r*l(x+r)
130 NEXT r
140 ANSWER=ANSWER/l(x)
150 ANSWER2=1(1v)*ANSWER
160 ANSWER3=ANSWER2v^n*l(x+n)/l(x)
170 ANSWER4=ANSWER2ANSWER3
180 PRINT x;” “;ANSWER;” “;ANSWER2;” “;ANSWER3;” “;ANSWER4
190 NEXT x
200 GOTO 60
Computer programs to calculate single life (x) actuarial present values, using a survival function
FIRST COMPUTER PROGRAM
Making line 10
10 DEF FNS(U)=whatever the survival function, S(U), is,
for example,
10 DEF FNS(U)=EXP(0.00022*U2.7*10^(6)*(1.124^U1)/LN(1.124)),
and then adding the lines below, will result in a computer program which will calculate and display the APV of an nyear temporary immediate life annuity, with a discount factor of v, of 1 per year payable m times per year for (x) for the values x=z up to and including x=h, in steps of 1/m, using a survival function, S(U).
m normally equals 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 12.
With m equal to 1 and v equal to 1, the resulting APV will have the same numerical value as the curtate life expectancy.
Provided S(U) tends to 0 as U tends to infinity, a high enough value for n will result in a whole life APV being calculated.
20 INPUT z,h
30 INPUT m,n,v
40 FOR x=z TO h STEP 1/m
50 ANSWER=0
60 FOR r=1 TO m*n
70 ANSWER=ANSWER+v^(r/m)*FNS(x+r/m)
80 NEXT r
90 ANSWER=ANSWER/(m*FNS(x))
100 PRINT x;” “;ANSWER
110 NEXT x
120 GOTO 20
