I just finished the Term Index, which you can find here.

Number of Opinions Released: 72
Per Curiam Decisions: 5 (7%)
Unanimous Decisions (9-0, 8-0): 24 (33%)
Lone Dissenter(8-1):6 (8%) [Thomas(3), Ginsburg(2), Breyer(1)]
Two Dissenters (7-2, 6-2, 5-2) :19 (26%)
Three Dissenters(6-3, 5-3): 9 (13%)
Five-to-Four Decision: 9 (13%)

More to come as I have more time to crunch numbers.
