Latest Edition of "Death Row USA"

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has released its latest edition of "Death Row USA." The total number of inmates on death row again declined from the previous report, marking a sharp reversal from the years of death row increases between 1973 and 2000. A total of 3,517 inmates remain on death row. The only jurisdictions recording death row population increases were Alabama, Arizona, California, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, Virginia, and the Federal Government. See Death Row USA. (NAACP-LDF, Death Row USA, July 1, 2003). (DPIC will post a pdf version of Death Row USA as soon as it becomes available.)
