Death Penalty Statistics and Facts. A little help ladies.

I need to write this paper and it asks for:

The Statistics on Men ( race included ) vs Women ( race included ) on Death Row or Have Been Executed.

I. Men
II. Women
III. Children

This is how it was outlined. However my teacher says to just pick one. Men, Women or children and the info by race.

The problem I am having is finding information on the # of people executed in the last year or 2 by race in the US.

If any of you know where I can find this info I would be very grateful.

Thank you for any help whatesoever.

  • Do you have to do the whole country or just one state?

    I imagine you could go to a pro-life or pro-penalty website and find out who's been executed. Or search google. I just got this link for Georgia...
