Greetings jc7486,

The stats that you are looking for are available at Microsoft's

This breaks out the stats and shows you just the current certification
tracks and the number of people currently certified in such. The MCSD
certification is still the original track as it was developed around
tools such as VB 6.0. They added several new elective tests over the
years, but they didn't actually change the entire curriculum (track).
The new MCSD track (MCSD for Microsoft .NET) will be available in
early 2003. This information is current as of October 11, 2002.

If you want to see the complete statistics including the original
tracks (as of August), MCP Magazine also tracks these (at the bottom
of their homepage): 

These were the only two sources I found online for obtaining accurate
counts of the numbers you are requesting. Microsoft might be willing
to provide you a breakdown of how many people have passed each
individual test if you need the information for research purposes, but
you would need to contact them personally.

I hope that helps to answer your question. Please let me know if I can
be of further assistance.
