Choices regarding final disposition — cremation or burial — are thought to be influenced by several factors, including cost, cultural pressure, religious experience, and critical thinking. A comparative statistical study shows interesting correlations between available funds, educational exposure, and disposition choice that suggests that regional and cultural influences may weigh most heavily in decision making. Generally speaking, states with the highest median income and academic levels tend to support cremation at higher levels (the least expensive option), while states with less income and education tend toward more expensive full service funerals with burial.
