The number of permit holders grew by a record 2 million last year which is 200,000 more than the previous record set in 2017, the study says, and adds that 8.3% of American adults have permits. In 15 states, more than 10% of adults have permits. The highest concealed carry rate is in Alabama where 32.1% of adults have permits followed by Indiana and Iowa where the rate is 21.6% and 16.5% respectively.
"Permit holders are extremely law-abiding," the study says. "In Florida and Texas, permit holders are convicted of firearms related violations at one-twelfth of the rate at which police officers are convicted."

That’s significant gains considering the new difficulties to obtain in some places over the last year.

According to Dr. Lott, Georgia gained 160,000+ WCL in 2020. Claims 1,268,564 wcl holders. 15.43% of adult population in GA has a wcl.

15.43% of the adult population in GA, or 15.43% of the eligible adult population in GA? IIRC, there is a pretty big difference between the two.
