Map of countries that ban corporal punishment of children

According to Reddit user Wolfinton, Sweden was the very first country to introduce a ban on corporal punishment of children (1979). In recent years, many other countries have followed suit. (As of today, 52 countries have banned corporal punishment of children.) Question: Is the frequency of child abuse any lower in these 52 countries than elsewhere?
