In Starcraft 2 some units are used more often than others. Of course it depends on many things, including tier, regular/spell-caster, the race of the opponent, etc.

Are there any statistics of unit usage in Starcraft 2? For example; saying on average how many units of a certain type are produced in a match, or in how many games at least one is produced?

curious why the close vote, I think this is an interesting question, but a more interesting question would be if advanced statistics exist for build order usage rather than # of units produced. –  z - Feb 21 '12 at 22:12
    
Are you talking about global stats for all (ladder) games played? Activision would be the only one to have that, and it would either be well-known (if publicly available) or it's not released. –  Nick T Feb 21 '12 at 22:13
    
@NickT I doubt if there is place with whole stats. However, any dataset would be of my interest. –  Piotr Migdal Feb 21 '12 at 22:18
    
I would guess the close vote is because something like this would probably fall under the "too localized" category. Say I'm zerg playing against terran and I'm going for mutas, but if I scout and see a quick double gas, then it's probably going to mean cloak banshee which would inflate the number of produced overseers and queens. Most unit compositions are built based on what is scouted to counter the opponent (endless cycle by the way). –  Sorean Feb 21 '12 at 22:51
    
@Sorean No, I am not searching on a strategic guide, rather - just curious which units are underused (e.g. never saw Battlecruiser for real). –  Piotr Migdal Feb 21 '12 at 23:40

I think the closest you'll get will be SC2gears.

Open up a replay in it and select the chart type Builds/Tech Stat and then check only the Units checkbox.

Units built during a game

As far as I can see you can only do that one replay at a time, so getting an overview might be very, very tiresome. If you can program, maybe you can use the plugin interface?

This is a great program with a lot of cool features but pretty much completely irrelevant to the OP's request. –  Decency Feb 26 '12 at 23:54
    
@Decency: I pointed the OP in the wrong feature direction. Now it shouldn't be completely irrelevant but "just" bothersome –  CruelCow Feb 27 '12 at 13:37
