Sun has not published the number. Here's some speculation abou the number. It's from over 5 years ago so clearly the number is higher.

1% of java sun certified people have cleared SCEA based on email from Oracle. This information is sent out when SCEA exam results are emailed.

SCEA (5.0), SCWCD (5.0), SCBCD (5.0), SCDJWS (5.0)
