AFAIK in a typical bomb half of the yield comes from such fission.
Dmytry,

I can't tell you what the breakdown is for a typical weapon, because that would be
telling you something about how the weapon works. However, I can point you to
public information on the Sedan nuclear test:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedan_%28nuclear_test%29

Sedan was a thermonuclear device with a fission yield less than 30% and a fusion yield about 70%
