cremation statistics

The ultimate growth opportunity!

Cremation in the United States is increasing dramatically in both real numbers and as a percentage of those that die each year. Confirmed statistics show that of the 2,416,425 people that died in the United States in 2001, 650,297 (26.93%) were cremated. It is projected that by 2010 over 36% of those who die will be cremated. In many States the cremation rate is already over 65%! The percentages for pets are dramatically higher.

A recent study indicated that the ashes of 68% of those that were cremated would be scattered in some fashion (30% water; 20% land; 18% where deceased requested).
