I found numbers on percentage of convictions by plea agreement. These are from the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics using Bureau of Justice Statistics data:

Felony convictions in state courts 2002--- 95% guilty pleas


All federal convictions 2003---- 96% guilty pleas (72,110 out of 74,850)


(Table 5.22, p. 423)
