Management Comparative Program Analysis Highlights


Each year, firms that complete the Management Comparative Survey receive their own report with the firm's information alongside a comparison to other Selected firms with similar case volume, geographic location and population density. In addition, Selected releases highlights from the total analysis of all firms' data. Below is a summary of past years' analysis.

2016 Analysis of the 2015 Fiscal Year

  • At-need burials comprised 46.4% of total cases, down slightly from last year. The cremation rate on average is up approximately 3%, continuing a multi-year trend .

  • Firms improved in average days in accounts receivable (28, down from 33) as well as average accounts receivable balance ($238,266, down from $254,999).

  • The number of preneeds serviced remained steady while the number of new preneed funded contracts sold leapt by 15.4%. Average preneed sales dollars rose to $1,030,337 from $910,820. This indicates more Selected firms are reaching the consumer with the advanced planning benefits message.

What people are saying about Selected members

"This is the first funeral I have helped plan. The most meaningful action was when Mom died and the person who came at 2:00 a.m. was wearing a suit and tie. That simple action—showing respect to the family and Mom's remains—is so appreciated. All the little extras Groce did for us were above expectations; they knew what we needed before we did and they had everything prepared and ready when needed."
