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

"I wanted to thank the funeral directors for their handling of the funeral. They took care of everything from beginning to end without any of us having to think about anything but our love for our father. They were very attentive to the family. It was a very dignified funeral."
