Welcome to our Mortuary Service Benchmarking Survey!

This Mortuary Service Benchmarking Survey is an initiative aimed at shedding light on the critical aspects of this essential industry. This survey aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of mortuary services, enabling us to identify trends and benchmarking insights. Your input will help us gain insights into the staffing, demographics, pay, charges for mortuary services, and other critical statistics within the mortuary industry.

By collecting comprehensive data, we seek to create a robust foundation for evaluating and improving these vital services. Your responses will contribute to the development of benchmarks and industry workforce profiling, which can assist both individual facilities and the broader mortuary service community in making informed decisions and improvements. Your participation in this survey is instrumental in achieving these objectives. The insights generated will benefit not only mortuary service providers but also the communities they serve.
