In brief: About 5%
At least 5%, and possibly more, of the adolescent population deals with significant depression at any one point in time.

Depression rates rise rapidly during adolescence--and much more so in girls than in boys. Between about age 12 and age 14, the boy/girl ratio goes from 1:1 to 1:2.
