Death Penalty Statistics

Here are some graphs with current statistics on the death penalty.

The research was provided by the Death Penalty Information website which is an outstanding resource on all matters related to the death penalty.

It is striking to see how it is specific regions in the US that continue to lead in the number of death row population and in the number of executions carried out every year.

This regional disparity is not new and is troubling but the disparity is also indicative that the death penalty is being implemented in lesser numbers in other parts of the US.
