...the "Stretch" is the exception, and it requires commencing the RMDs by the end of the first year after the year of death. What percentgage actually do so?

Out of us six siblings, only two took the inherited IRA. Of course, we were also the youngest and made the most money, so that was a huge plus for us. I would think that it would be tough to assign general significance on percentages, since whether you take it immediately or stretch it has most to do with one's specific circumstances.
