According to the Joshua Project, a strategic and comprehensive research group dedicated to analyzing and sharing international missions data, there are 2.89 billion unreached peoples in the world today. That's 41.7% of the world's population.

Joshua Project defines "an unreached people" as "a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group."
