The paper challenges the premise that all data collected in the insurance industry must be stored in the database. This paper applies a cost/benefit model that allows for testing and assessing of data items currently stored in the database, as well as providing a 'to store or not to store' decision policy regarding prospective data. An empirical case study of a life insurance agency is presented through which the ideas are illustrated.
