The WebAIM Million analysis (https://webaim.org/projects/million/) found 1,533,402 tables on the home pages of the top one million web sites in early 2021. This was down from almost 1.9 million in 2020. Only 140,793 (9.2%) of the tables had valid data table markup. While it's difficult to know how many of those 1.5+ million tables were data tables as opposed to layout tables, this shows that accessible tables are rather uncommon on the web.
