In this study, the writer examines the scientific and statistical validity of a series of studies. Each of the studies selected examines, from a statistical perspective, some aspect of the death penalty. The writer discusses various related areas of interest including statistics concerning connections between crime rates and the death penalty, homicide rates and the death penalty and also race, religion and the death penalty.
From the Paper:"Areas of interest considered included methods for excluding jurors in death penalty cases; connections between the death penalty and homicide rates; the link between religion, race, and support for the death penalty; and links between crime rate increases and the death penalty. Each study possessed scientific and statistical strengths, but unfortunately each was also marred by limitations that negatively affect the validity of these studies. Their use as references should be done with some scholarly caution."
