This annual BJS Bulletin describes major legal decisions and statutory provisions affecting death penalty issues during 1993. The report presents characteristics of the 2,716 persons under sentence of death on December 31, 1993, and of the 37 persons who were executed in 10 States. It summarizes the movement of prisoners into and out of death sentence status during the year. Numerical tables present data on offenders' sex, race, Hispanic origin, education, marital status, age at time of capital sentencing, legal status at time of capital offense, methods of execution, trends, and time between imposition of death sentence and execution. Two historical tables account for executions since 1930 and sentencing since 1974.
