Can You Afford To Die? – Infographic
An infographic from TermLifeInsurance.org takes data from the National Funeral Director?s Association and others, and uses it to compute the cost of the modern funeral.
Sadly, while the cost of a funeral was a mere 2% of median income in 1967, it?s grown to 14.8% in 2006.
Of course, if you don?t want to be buried you could always be cremated, and the map at the bottom shows the percentage of cremations by state.
See the full-size graphic after the break.
