Death Penalty Information by State

 The Death Penalty Information Center now has two resources for state-by-state information:

Our original state-by-state database covers essential statistics like execution numbers, death row population, and murder rates.

Our NEW state information pages cover more in-depth information and provide historical background on the death penalty in each state, including abolitionist states. Each state page also links to relevant websites, such as state legislatures, groups doing death penalty work, and Departments of Corrections.
