DPIC is pleased to announce the addition of five more states to one of our latest resources, the State Information Pages. Adding to the original 15 state pages made available earlier, pages for Alaska, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Wisconsin may now be accessed as well. These pages provide historical and current information on the death penalty for each state (regardless of whether it currently has the death penalty), including famous cases, past legislative actions, and important links to key organizations. For frequently-updated information, such as execution totals, the size of death row, and murder rates, see our state-by-state database. More pages will be made available soon. You can reach the State Information Pages through the “State by State” button at the top of every page on our website or under the “Resources” tab in our main menu.

(DPIC, August 11, 2011). Much of the information for these pages has been provided by individuals and organizations working on the death penalty in each state, and we welcome further input. Thanks to those who helped make this new resource possible. For links to some of DPIC’s other new resources, see our Special Resources page.
