Warning! How bad is to be a Repeated Applicant?

Be or not to be?
How bad could it be?
Does anybody know around how many people remains every year (after matching) as not matched and therefore become a "repeated applicant"?
I ask this because many forums and sources through internet makes this appear like the worse scenario you can ever wish to somebody.
If one, two or ten participants in the match (after that) remains like no-matched and have to wait for the next process.... ...well..that number is ok and you can consider kill yourself... but I think the number is higher, by far. Does anybody know aprox how many or what % are "repeated applicants" each year?
