How many never visit startpage?

I'm looking for the percentage of sessions that never visit the startpage any time during the session. 

Any ideas on how to do this?

Yes, you can get this using Advanced segment feature in GA. Here is the link

Hi Hampus,

you can do so by creating a custom segment(s) where you will exclude / include sessions which do or do not contain exact match of / or whatever is the root / home page on your site. If you need a regex it will probably be something like ^/($|\?).

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot!
I did: Add Segment > New segment > Conditions > Sessions include page exactly matches /.

Realised another way to find this is by looking at Unique Pageviews in the pages report and dividing it by the total number of sessions.

But this requires manual interference, but the earlier one doesn't require any..
