This can depend on many factors such as demand for services, job opportunities, salary, cost of living, and personal preferences. However, some general factors to consider when evaluating the best geographic location to practice Child Psychiatry should include:

1.) Population density and demographics: Areas with higher populations, particularly those with a high % of children and adolescents, may be a prime area to focus on.
2.) Availability of jobs: Some regions have a higher concentration of hospitals, clinics, and private practices that require child psychiatrists. You may narrow your search to areas that meet that density.
3.) Insurance and coverage: Some areas may have better insurance coverage for mental health services or more public funding available, which can affect the accessibility of child psychiatry services and impact the demand for practitioners.
4.) Compensation and cost of living: You can check on Glassdoor to check salaries for your desire job and then compare that salary with the cost of living on https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/region_rankings_current.jsp?region=019 for example. You can then make an informed decision to see if the location matches your financial goals & personal preferences for living.

To find the best geography for you, I'd recommend researching and comparing different regions based on these factors, and take into account your professional goals and personal preferences.

Best of luck!
