Fifteen states and the federal government executed 66 prisoners in 2001, 19 fewer than in 2000, according to the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics. All were executed by lethal injection.

The number of people receiving death sentences has also dropped. As of 2001, there were 3,581 inmates under sentence of death, 20 fewer than at the end of 2000. During 2001, 155 inmates received a death sentence, representing the smallest number of admissions since 1973 when 44 persons were admitted.
