Hi there and welcome to Science Buddies!

It sounds like you're carrying out a very interesting project! I searched for some maps that you can compare for your science fair data. Below is a map from NASA that shows the areas in which the Ozone layer is depleted. Below that link is a map that shows you the prevalence of skin cancer by geographic region.

I'd also recommend that you search the web for some reputable scientific articles about your topic. There are some great articles on PubMed or NCBI that I think would be helpful in conducting your research.

Please let us know if you have any other questions and we'll be more than happy to help out!
Best of luck on your project!!

Stay nerdy,
