A STATISTICAL EXAMINATION OF YIELD SWITCHING FRAUD IN THE FEDERAL CROP INSURANCE PROGRAM

An over-parameterized statistical yield-switching-fraud model is developed. Over-parameterized procedures are reviewed. Five percent of 206,952 producers (thirteen percent in one state) have suspicious yield patterns, elect higher coverage, and increase total multiple-unit indemnifications up to ten percent in some states and up to 30 percent at some coverage levels.
