Based on data collected from eight courts in five provinces, this chapter shows that China’s use of the death penalty was mainly limited to violent crimes and drug offenses in practice. In addition, the data showed a declining trend for the use of the death sentences with immediate execution but an increasing trend for the death sentences with suspension in the new century.

Keywords:   empirical data, ‘immediate execution’ vs. ‘death sentence with reprieve’, frequency of capital crimes, violent and drug capital offenses, death penalty reduction, Killing Fewer and Killing Cautiously
