This is not a true reflection of the amount of sexual abuse occurring against children as numbers can only be recorded when children speak up. These statistics are the most current figures for 2020 as recorded by police.  Other things to take into consideration are different laws in different States, if one State is a stand out it is not necessarily because there is more abuse happening, it may be tougher laws and better reporting avenues.
