Current Publications 
This quarterly publication provides industry aggregate summaries of financial performance, financial position, capital adequacy and key ratios.  The publication also includes detailed statistics at a class of business level, state-level premium and claims expenses, a breakdown of operating income and expenses, and more granular solvency information.
This annual publication contains industry-level claims development statistics by class of business. The publication also includes summaries of movements in the ultimate cost of claims for selected major classes of business.
This semi-annual publication contains individual insurance group information about financial performance, financial position, capital adequacy and key ratios. The publication also includes financial year-end results for consolidated institutions and Lloyds Australia.
Quarterly General Insurance Institution-level Statistics - new release date
This quarterly publication will include individual insurer information about financial performance, financial position, capital adequacy and key ratios. APRA originally proposed to release the publication on 25 May 2017.  After considering feedback from general insurers, APRA will release the publication on 23 November 2017.  The six months’ postponement will help general insurers prepare for the expected increase in enquiries about the statistics.
This publication, released twice per year, provides an overview of intermediated insurance placed with APRA-authorised general insurers, Lloyd’s underwriters and unauthorised foreign insurers (UFIs). The statistical tables include detailed information about risks placed with UFIs.
This is a comprehensive database of policy and claim information on professional indemnity (PI) and public and product liability (PL) insurance. It contains data on every open, reopened or finalised claim and policy underwritten since 2003 by Australian APRA-regulated general insurers.
Past Publications 
This publication contained State level premium and claims expenses for direct insurers, and information about public insurers' financial performance, position, and premium and claims by class of business. 
The bulletin included detailed information at both an individual insurer and aggregate industry level, including: aggregated industry tables, key entity specific information, public insurer data, and Lloyd's Australia data. The bulletin used full year data from each entity.
Institution-level data superseded by General Insurance Institution-level Statistics
