imageAn 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.
