The following reports are for the 2002 Market Share of Property & Casualty Insurers licensed to do business in California. The data are from the National Association of Insurance Commissioner's (NAIC) database, for California licensed companies only. The information is the same as reported on the State Page (page 24) of the insurer's Annual Statement or known as the Statutory Page 14 data. Furthermore, only companies actively doing business in California (with Direct Written Premium greater than $0) are shown.

The reports are "by line of business" on an individual company basis and on a group basis, and are sorted alphabetically by company (or group) name, and by their written premium.  The Top 25 Groups' report shows their breakdown of business written by concentration level, which is defined by the percentages of premium written in 2002 by line of business with respect to that group's total business written.  These Top 25 Groups represent 76.8% of California's property and casualty industry.
