As the post title says, what percentage of the population is awakened and using magic. Failing that, how many mages are in seattle? I would like a page number or citation if possible so I can look it up.

Street Magic has a section on society.

Roughly 1% of the population is awakened. This figure has ben used since 2nd edition, possibly before.

Awakened counts Mages, Adepts, Magical Knacks, Spiritual Pacts, Aura vision and certain metahumans, including those infected with various strains of HMMV.

Obviously, those off the grid do not factor into sensus data, that includes the majority of those afflicted with HMMV.
