In 2011, 1,618 applicants (809 couples) participated in the Match as couples, an all-time high. Couples enjoy great success, with match rates above 90 percent every year since 1984. In 2011, the match rate for couples was 94.6 percent, up from 93.4 percent in 2010. About 79 percent of couples are U.S. seniors, and their match rates are quite similar to those of their classmates, varying within 1 or 2 percentage points each year.

This is from NRMP data.
