US States with the Most Prisoners on Death Row

List of the US states with the most inmates on death row. Connecticut abolished capital punishment in April 2012, becoming the 17th state without the death penalty - and the 5th to repeal the law since 2007. Connecticut and New Mexico both have prisoners currently sentenced to death, even though capital punishment has been outlawed in those states.

The numbers below were recorded January 1, 2012.
