Variable: It depends on where you live. In the United States most boys are circumcised. In my practice more than 80% are. Certain religions mandate circumcisions. Certain cultures encourage being uncircumcised.

10% to 90%: There is huge variation in the percentage of baby boys that get circumcised. It depends on the ethnic group or the religious group that the family belongs to. Overall, in america, my estimate is that 2/3 of the baby boys get circumcised.
