Slightly OT: How common is NAT?

I have been asked at work how common NAT'ed corporate networks are. My gut
feeling is very, for a couple of reasons:

 - all the corporate networks I have seen are like that
 - no one can afford mounds of real IPs
 - it's more "secure"

Does anyone know of any research / references which will either backup my
statement, or prove me wrong?
