A Cartographic Illustration Of How Pervasive Jerry Sandusky's Youth Charity Is In Pennsylvania

This is a map of how many individuals The Second Mile served in 2008, the year the charity's employees finally took action to prevent Jerry Sandusky from hanging out with minors. The map comes from the charity's 2008 annual report. It shows how far The Second Mile's influence ranged. Thousands and thousands of young people from every county in Pennsylvania. Not all of them were boys. And it's impossible to say how easily Sandusky could have come into contact with kids who participated in The Second Mile's different programs. But, yeesh, this is a scary thing to behold. My total figure from the numbers on the map is 388,365. If you add the numbers that aren't included on the map you get 394,395 individuals (at least that's what my calculator said after many minutes of data input).
