(1) The experience or judgment of the insurer or rating organization making the filing;

(2) Its interpretation of any statistical data it relies upon; and

(3) The experience of other insurers or rating organizations in conjunction with paragraph (b)(1) of this section; or

(4) Any other relevant factors.

A filing and supporting information shall be open to inspection by parties in interest after the filing becomes effective.
