You forgot to bold Maryland and Delaware, both technically Southern states. Missouri is a mixed bag, leaving only Michigan as the truly Northern state on the top 10 list.

Here it is again, revised (red = South; blue = North; purple = both/neither):

1. Louisiana- 10.8 per 100,000
2. Mississippi- 7.4 per 100,000
3. Alabama- 7.1 per 100,000
4. Michigan- 7.0 per 100,000
5. South Carolina- 6.9 per 100,000
6. Missouri- 6.5 per 100,000
7. Maryland- 6.3 per 100,000
8. Delaware- 6.2 per 100,000
9. Tennessee- 6 per 100,000
10. tie. Georgia- 5.9 per 100,000
10. tie. Alabama- 5.9 per 100,000

I think Alaska has a huge rape problem, especially among the natives. There are also a lot of lonely drunks.
