The statistical tables in this report presents characteristics of persons under sentence of death on December 31, 2007, and of persons executed in 2006.
The tables present state-by-state information on the movement of prisoners into and out of death sentence status during 2007, status of capital statutes, and methods of execution. Numerical tables also summarize data on offenders' gender, race, Hispanic origin, age at time of arrest for capital offense, legal status at time of capital offense, and time between imposition of death sentence and execution. The tables are based on those presented in Capital Punishment, 2006 with the following change: table 3, which reported information on the minimum age authorized for capital punishment, has been discontinued and replaced with a table summarizing Federal laws providing for the death penalty (formerly Appendix Table 1).
