Usually 18-20% Chromium and about 8-10.5% nickel. It depends on the type of stainless steel you are referring to. If it is 18-8 stainless steel, then it is 18% chromium and 8% nickel (hence the 18-8). There are several other types, like the 300 series and the 400 series which have slightly different variations of chromium and nickel. If you do a search for "types of stainless steel" you will find that there are several different types.
