Quite a few more now: http://cbi.state.co.us/ic/Stats/2010...Statistics.pdf
It's up to 103,000 -- still a small percentage. I have no idea on OCers -- can't imagine that anyone does.
While looking up some stats for another thread, I ran across the following:
Colorado Population - 2006: 4.8 million (interpolated)
CHP Permit Applications - 2006: 6241
Note: The issue rate was 93.9%
Even allowing for 100% of all permit-holders remaining here in the state, for a total of 31,205 permit-holders (they're good for 5 years), that's still just 0.65% of the population at large!
I'd been lead to belief it was upwards of 10% to 20% of the population. But it's just over 1/2 of 1%.
Aside from counting people who show up at OC dinners (not very scientific), do we have any stats on OCers in this state?
However, I see nothing on the PDF itself which says these stats are limited to Colorado. In fact, the sheer numbers indicate they're for all CBI stats for the month of August, not for Colorado, even for the entire year.
I'm confused. Why would the CBI report anything out-of-state?
CBI=Colorado Bureau of Investigation
