What is NOT deducted is licenses canceled by Sheriffs due to license holders moving out of state and licenses that have yet to lapse whose owners have died. There may be other causes of that number being high but it definitely sets the upper limit and it is doubtful that it is off by more than a few thousand.
Someone would have to compare the age distribution of Ohio CHL holders and the mortality rates for the same age group(s) over the latest 5 years. Obviously, after 5 years the license has expired so it doesn't matter that the licensee has also.
