Anyone got numbers on peering vs transit?

I wonder if anyone has done any estimates on how many
percent of the Internet traffic:

A) does not pass a peering relationship
   (i.e. is AS internal or passes through transit connections only)
B) passes a public peering relationship
C) passes a private peering relationship

I know this is fairly impossible to estimate globally, so even any
local or network specific research is appreciated.
