Death Penalty Information Center

Anyone interested in information on the death penalty or capital punishment issues will find this website fascinating. Here is a wealth of statistics on every aspect imaginable. There's an "execution database" that's current up and into 2009; a state-by-state section that lists such statistics such as if the state has the death penalty, its current death row population, and its total number of executions; and a huge section on murder rates. Recent legislation, sentencing and the U.S. Supreme Court also warrant their own areas.

Note: Be aware that the nonfactual sections of this website reflect an anti-death penalty viewpoint.
