I can't give actual numbers for French but a hard guess would be around
100 to 1. The apostrophe comes everytime the article "Le" (mascusline)
or "La" (feminine) is placed in front of a noun or adjective that starts
with a vowel. And there are plenty of these ;)

There are also all occurences of "qui" and "que" that become "qu'" for
the same vowel reason stated above.

eg: Le logiciel qu'il utilise
(the software he uses)

Of course there are some other situation where the apostrophe is used
but the two above are the most frequent.
