Very tightly held industry secret that you will probably not get a real answer to (including mine). I saw a stat that said there were 32 million WP members a few years back. If you guess that 25% are idle 70% are active but not elite and 5% are elite you are down to about 1.5 million. From there it is a % game and my guess is that:

DM is somewhere around 2-4%
PE is around 4-10%
GE is around 10-15%
SE Balance Silver

Completely BS guesses but as good as any other info out there. Bottom line is that there are an awful lot of "elites" out there.

Exactly. Notice my cut-off for DM is 2-4%. We all know that 1-2% = 2%
