I need some rough data about books published by recognized publishers vs. books that are self-published. Can you help me find where to look for these numbers?

I am looking for a couple of numbers, worldwide (though broken down by major market market is fine too), only English language, every year for the last 5-10 years:
1) Number of self-published books
2) Number of books published by recognized publishers
Where do I even begin looking for this info? Any publishers, book trade professionals, librarians, data geeks have any idea? Thanks!
