In this study the following questions are considered.
1. How much was paid in premiums for insurance on public property in New Mexico from 1923 to 1934, inclusive, and how much was repaid to the state by insurance companies for losses to public property during this period. What is the ratio between the premiums and the reimbursement for losses?
2. What is the relationship between the loss ratios on all public property in New Mexico and: (1) public school property in New Mexico; (2) all classes of property in New Mexico; (3) public property in other states; (4) all classes of property in the United States?
3. Is the loss ratio on public property in New Mexico high or low in comparison with standards determined by insurance authorities?
4. Is the loss ratio on public property in New Mexico such as to justify some effort by the state to decrease the amount of the premiums paid for insurance?
