Leverage of the S&P 500

I was recently reading WEB's article in fortune from the 70s about inflation and came across this measurement.

 

Stock holders equity as a percentage of total assets.

 

He comments that in the years leading up to 75 it moved from 63% to 50% as companies used more leverage.

 

Any idea what that percentage is now and is there any graph of its progress over the last few years?

I'm assuming you already tried s&p's website.  It always takes forever to find anything on there but they might have it. You could also do this on stockscreen123 if you had a subscription, and they have a free trial period so you could get out of paying.
