First, the all-time stats:

Closed Closed then Edited Closed then Reopened Closed then Edited then Reopened 
------ ------------------ -------------------- -------------------------------- 
34567  4388               1174                 545                              

So, slightly over 3%, jumping to 12% for edited questions. For the past 365 days, we see:

Closed Closed then Edited Closed then Reopened Closed then Edited then Reopened 
------ ------------------ -------------------- -------------------------------- 
11824  1084               263                  140                              

Or roughly 2%, jumping to just shy of 13% again for edited questions.

The more interesting breakdown by close reason follows, again looking only at questions closed within the past 365 days:
