My understanding (from stuff posted here) is that in MN the ratio is even more lopsided.

It'd be even more interesting to see the stats broken out by age, race, and gender classes. Income, too, but I doubt that would be available.

Since permits holders are largely male, middle-aged or older, middle or upper-class, and white, I wonder how we compare to others like us, who don't have permits, rather than the general population over 21 at large.

Apples to apples, indeed.
