So im to visualise the number of death penalty executions carried out throughout the world. Right of the bat i know that although the numbers themselves vary widely from country to country it has to be kept in mind that each country does not have the same number of inhabitants. For example even through country A might have an execution number of 100 and country B also has an execution number of 100, the overall populous has to be taken into account. Country A might only have a population of 200 whereas B had 400. This makes country A far worse. Granted there are a number of factors that could come into that. For example dictatorships, high crime rate etc. but a country that kills a higher number of its populous compared to another despite the reasons can’t be good, being somewhat of a pariah state. i want to try and show this relationship in my final outcome.
