I'm sure there are close to optimal numbers and stats out there for cbetting, but I really don't know them. You want to make your decision based on your opponents, the board, and your image.
If your opponent does not fold and your hand does not connect with the board, why would you cbet?
Stack sizes should be considered before you even decide to play the hand preflop. If you are realizing stack sizes are odd once the flop is out and action is on you, then you made a mistake. And believe me, it happens to everyone. It's something you have to try to be conscious of when you are playing - especially if you multitable.
For instance, don't cbet a short stack if you're not prepared to call his all in.
