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.

2014 Analysis of the 2013 Fiscal Year

  • 161 firms participated.
  • The number of funerals serviced was approximately the same at 51% of the total cases serviced. The cremation rate also remained about the same.
  • The percentage of pre-need funded contracts serviced during the year declined to 22% for 2013, while the average number of new contracts sold remained relatively steady at 131. This could indicate that contract holders are living slightly longer than in the past.
  • The number of days of sales in accounts receivable continues to increase. All funeral service companies need to review their company policies on collection of payments by the date of service.

What people are saying about Selected members

"We want to take this opportunity to thank Horan and McConaty for the excellent job that was done at our mother's funeral. At the time the arrangements were made, our funeral director was extremely compassionate and efficient. Every detail we wanted at our mother's service was present. This type of OUTSTANDING employee is extremely rare to find in any type of business. Because of this excellent service, we will be making an appointment to pre-plan our funeral service."
