Estimating the percentage of contagious people walking around

Anyone have any ideas (or cites) for estimating the actual number (a/o %) of contagious people walking around in a given region (that is, those not yet isolating themselves, but out and about)? They would have built up a sufficient viral load to be infectious, and not yet be symptomatic, or symptomatic but not yet removed from circulation, or "asymptomatic"? This seems like it would be a pretty useful number (and for those in the US, estimates like it may part of the county-by-county plan announced by White House today).
