Does anyone know where to look to find out the number of people who have passed the test?
Just wondering.

Sun has never made this information available, though it must be many, many thousands by now.

Well, my book sales supposedly total about 50,000 for the two books and they are not the best sellers on Amazon so I would imagine there are over 200,000 certification books in print and surely a large fraction of those have led to passing the exam.
The Sun JDK downloads are in the millions so
I would guess over 100,000 SCJP.
In the consulting biz we would call that a SWAG!

MCSE certified people number about 304,762 according to http://www.mcpmag.com/ in the US. My Mom sells MCSE courses at www.pcprofessor.com so she told me about it.

So if their are 300,000 mcse's in the usa, I am thinking there
are <120,000 sun certified java programmers.
for Sun certified developers I am thinking less then 20% of
the programmers, so that is 24,000. Look at the number of messages at the developer test section in comparision to the programmer certification section.
 
no wonder he is so sad, he hasn't seen this tiny ad:
