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.

2015 Analysis of the 2014 Fiscal Year

  • At-need funerals comprised 49.7% of total cases, down slightly from last year. The cremation rate on average is up approximately 2% but remains constant at 37% for the median reported.

  • The number of hours utilized per case increased by 3%. Payroll and related benefits are the largest percentage of a firm’s expenses and need to be monitored closely.

  • The number of preneeds serviced remained steady while the number of new preneed funded contracts sold rose by 9%. This indicates more Selected firms are reaching the consumer with the advanced planning benefits message this year.
