About Our Rights ...

It will be evident to anyone who makes even a cursory examination of this report that we have spent a considerable amount of time and money to produce this document. In order to protect our investment and rights, this document is copyrighted. You may NOT copy or duplicate it in any way whatsoever! We have received reports of people in other states making photocopies of the report or sections of it and giving it to their friends. Such activities are not only illegal, but they are such a bad reflection on the character of those who are involved...people who are supposed to stand for only the highest moral values in our honorable funeral profession.

About The Georgia Statistics...

These statistics are compiled from information obtained from the Georgia Bureau of Vital Statistics, Atlanta, Georgia, as supplied on death certificates filed with the Bureau. The Bureau of Vital Statistics does not close out each calendar year's statistics until June 30 of the following year. So that means that the report for Georgia can not be produced until after that time. The normal publication date is August 15 each year.

The following categories of disposition are included for Georgia:

Burial - includes inground burial and entombment in a mausoleum.

Cremation - includes cremation by both direct and indirect heat.

Removal - includes all cases where body was removed from state for final disposition.

Other - Any other type of disposition not included in the types above such as: "blank" entries, "disinterments", "anatomical donation", "donation", "med school", "dissection", "storage", "sea burial", or any other entry not listed above.

Funeral Industry Consultants, Inc., its employees, agents, and research personnel assume no responsibility or liability for any omission, inaccuracy, or possible error in reporting these statistics. If any occurs, it was certainly not deliberate, but rather the result of human error or oversight. If you find an error please send us a written explanation and correction to P. O. Box 1456, Perry, Florida 32348, and we will provide correction updates to all who have purchased our reports.

We welcome your comments and suggestions on how we may make this report even more useful to you.
