2015 Online Funeral Pricing National Survey

2015 Online Funeral Pricing National Survey ( 10 Files )

A joint project by Funeral Consumers Alliance and Consumer Federation of America. Survey samples 15 funeral homes each, in 10 cities around the country:Atlanta, Denver, the District of Columbia, Indianapolis, Mercer County New Jersey, Minneapolis, Orange County California, Seattle, Tucson. 

The survey tracks how many funeral homes fully disclose prices on their websites. In addition, it gives the range of costs for three common funeral arrangments (direct cremation, immediate burial, full-service funeral).
