Abstract


The issue of death penalty and crime deterrence has been a debate. A review was undertaken on the Quantitative evidences that found the mixed results both deterring effect as well non-deterring effect. Several studies have documented deterring effects of capital punishment. However, the published studies on capital punishment and deterrence effects include a number of statistical models and conclusions are contradictory. Hence, these types of studies needed a lot of care for the confirmation of hypothesis of statistical models.
