Actuaries use mathematical and other skills to measure and manage risk regarding financial and social problems. An actuary might deal with questions such as: How will changing the legal drinking age affect the amount insurance companies pay out for auto accidents? Should a professional baseball team sign a certain player or not? What is the risk of a hurricane hitting Florida and what is the expected cost of recovery?
