How does the Pope know one in 50 clergy is a paedophile? Is that fact or opinion?

Pope Francis has been quoted as saying that "two per cent" – or one in 50 – of the Catholic Church's clergy are paedophiles involved in abuse cases.
This information has often been requested previously but has never been provided by the church.
For this reason, I was shocked to see a figure being quoted by Pope Francis and the question immediately arose in my mind as to how he calculated it?
