What is the background density of dark matter?

    Far from any superclusters, is there a background of DM which hasn't yet clumped (at least to any great extent)? What is its density compared to the average DM density (which I think averages about 1 GeV/m3 in the present)?

    Would there be any ΛCDM theoretical papers that give predictions on the DM distribution in the form of a graph, such as X= percent; Y= fraction of DM lying within the densest X percent of space?
