I'm at home recovering from a medical thing, so messing with local data. Below (hopefully) is a map of child abuse in Georgia per 1,000 kids. In other words, it's per capita, so it controls for small versus large counties. As you can see, not a lot of consistency here, except perhaps too many counties around Macon popping out. Click on the map and you can move around. Click on a county and you'll get its rank and rate per 1,000 kids.
