Percentage of confidence in a finding. For example, if an insurance company's total loss reserves should be $10,000,000 in order to attain an 80% confidence level that enough money will be available to pay anticipated claims, then, in 8 times out of 10, after all claims have been settled the total claims paid out will be less than $10,000,000. Conversely, in 2 times out of 10 the total claims paid out will be greater than $10,000,000.
