Common numbers / statistics for Uniquely mapped reads?

Common numbers / statistics for Uniquely mapped reads?:

Was asked if there was a commonly reported numbers for uniquely mapped reads (which is troublesome to define with bowtie)
vs total mapped reads Not sure also if the numbers differ for applications
e.g.
WGS
exome reseq
human vs other organisms.
Got this figure from a 2009 paper. Not sure if anyone collates data like this
