SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Almost one in four of the roughly 23,000 Illinois residents who have applied for concealed carry permits live in Cook County, but new figures from the state police show most interest comes from rural areas of the state when factoring in population.


Data released this week show the highly populated county that’s home to Chicago leads the rankings with more than 5,300 applications filed between Jan. 5 and Jan. 13.
Suburban Chicago’s densely populated Will and DuPage counties followed in second and third with 1,759 and 1,589 applications respectively.


But on a per-capita basis, rural counties have the highest proportion of applicants compared to urban and suburban communities.


When comparing application numbers to a county’s population, Cumberland County in east-central Illinois ranks first, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Fifty-six people there have applied for the permits. Cumberland has about 11,000 residents. In White County in southern Illinois, there have been 70 applications so far. The county has about 15,000 residents. And in Wabash County in southeastern Illinois, there were 52 applications. The county has about 12,000 residents.


On a per-capita basis, Cook County ranks last among Illinois’ 102 counties, the newspaper reported.
