This study will emphasize detailed contextual analysis of a limited number of events or conditions and their relationships. The study will use both qualitative and quantitative (Creswell, 2003) asserts that a mixed methods design is useful to capture the best of both quantitative and qualitative approaches. This report goes ahead to give the recommendation which can be Economic studies "find each execution results in three fewer murders, five fewer homicides, between three and 25 fewer murders with an average of 14, between8-28 murders with an average of 18, and even 150 fewer murders." The death penalty does have deterrent effect. To say otherwise would be to admit that potential murderers are not rational (and thus admit that they should not be subject to criminal justice at all).
