Let us also assume that disabled members leave the group. Define the following random variables for each year j = 1, 2, . : Nj = number of new disabilities occurring in the group in the year j, Vj = number of (not disabled) members of the group at the beginning of year j, Xj := Nj Vj = observed disablement frequency in year j. At time n all random variables with indices  n are known and we are interested in Nn+1 Xn+1 = . Vn+1 Observe that on the right-hand side of the last equation only Nn+1 is not yet known, hence we need to model only Nn+1 .

E. without weights, or equivalently, all weights wj are equal to 1). The density of Xj is then given by f& (x) = (1  &)x &, x 5 N. 27) as follows: ´ ³ ´ ³ e = log (1  &) , b & e =  log 1  e&e , & ³ ´  e2 = 1, w e = 1, c x,  e2 /w e = 0. Note that µ (&) = E& (Xj ) = 1& . 30) we get that n x0 1 1 b Uexp = u (&) : u (&) 2 (1  &)  2 &  2 ; which is the family of the Beta distributions. Again, one can easily verify, that o x0 >  2 , 0 <  2 < 1 , P coll = E [µ ()] = x0 . 2 Construction of Conjugate Classes The following theorem is often helpful when we are looking for a conjugate family U to the family F = {F& : & 5 }.
