Recent media claims report millions of consumers will see their scores jump as foreclosures and bankruptcies fall off of credit reports. As a result, credit score trends have garnered more and more attention. But are we really seeing wholesale scores shift up?

This results in insurers striving to extract better insights from greater volumes of increasingly complex data.
