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

"We cannot say enough about how wonderful they were. We worked with Dave. He was truly understanding of our needs during out time of grief. He explained all of our options and didn't give us any pressure to make choices. He was patient and kind. It was as if he was a part of the family throughout the process. "
