I could quibble a bit over the comparison that for instance, "more juvenile offenders are executed in the United States than in any of the other four" [where such practice is performed]. Since the U.S. is the third most populous country, this comparison perhaps should have been done on a per capita basis. Though perhaps the writer was just distracted by their horror that such a practice is performed.
Most of the other statistics seemed pretty reasonable reported. Like "according to a report issued by the US Department of Labor on November 29, 2001, 4.02 million americans -- the highest number in 19 years -- were living on relief."
