According to figures from 2004, the US treated 34.4 billion gallons of sewage water per day. 2.5% of this water (1 billion gallons) was reused for other purposes. Although I cannot find global figures on the amount of reclaimed water used, it is clear that more can be reused. Israel sets an example by recycling 70% of its sewage water!
The South Bay Water Recycling program in California recycles 21 million gallons of water per day. The EPA issued a technical document in 2004 to provide information on the benefits of recycling water. It hopes that with the increase in population, the increase in need for recycling water will lead more states to follow the examples of states like California and Virginia.
