I get 50 to 200 spams a day. About 80% to 95% of these are catched by
the DCC, depending on my rejection threshold.

But don't trust these numbers much: I guess that I'm biased because I've
noticed that most local spammers (responsible for a significant fraction 
of my samples) are dumber than some "hardcore", foreign, spammers :).
