You should probably read up on count regression and its various
relatives, e.g. truncated count regression (for your limited range
responses), as well as exposure/offset terms, which can be used to
control for rates. The Stata Press book by J. S. Long and J. Freese
(2005), Regression Models for Categorical and Limited Dependent
Variables with Stata, 2nd Edition, is a good place to look. 

Ordinal regression models aren't really appropriate for counts.
