    There are very different populations in those countries. Why wouldn't you show RELATIVE number of executions? Let say per every 1000 or 1000000 of population. I suspect order in that list would change little bit.
    Wouldn't it?

    Is there any data to show a break down by ethnicity of the 46 people executed in the U.S.A. ?

    Re the CNN Global Death Penalty broadcast and statistics, it would be helpful to present each nation's # of executions as a ratio of executions per 100,000 population, for easy country comparisons. For example. the US, with a population of 313 million, had a total of 46 executions in 2010, which translates to 1.46 people per 100,000. Saudia Arabia had fewer documented executions, 27, but with a population of only 26 million translates to 10 executions per 100,000. This is almost 7 times the execution rate of the U.S. (Fyi, I'm personally opposed to capital punishment.)
