A little while ago Jacob Singh and Gerhard Killesreiter did some work to gather some growth statistics about drupal.org. Here's that data and some analysis of it (see attached Open Document Spreadsheet for the raw data and some pivot tables of the data).
- We can see a big bump in registrations in January 2011 - Go Drupal 7.
A research made in September 2012 showed, that Drupal powers almost 2% of german websites. To get in details statistics by region and drupal versions, check out the following graphs at www.arocom.de/drupal-statistik .

I've released some preliminary code that integrates fully with OG (Drupal6) and provides analytics extension for each group.
At the moment you get out of the box a very minimal dashboard view and downloads report. A few points to note:
1. The architecture was built to be modular so that every module can extend or create it's own new reports.
2. It is based on Google's Chart API (the new one, not the old static image charts, and due to that it is also fully ajaxed or REST if so to say).
As part of preliminary work on the Commons information architecture for Drupal 7, I'm interested in how many groups people join on an Organic groups site.
Surely everyone is like myself and is a member of twenty or more groups, right? Apparently not!
For example, if we look at group membership on Groups.Drupal.org, we see that nearly 74 percent of GDO users are in only 1-2 groups! However, in aggregate, ~26% of people are in more than two groups.

Hello Security folks and marketers,
I'm collaborating with Jojo Toth (mogdesign) on a marketing piece about security in Drupal. It will mostly be about the process of handling an issue. We're trying to brainstorm what statistics we might want to use, but most of them end up seeming negative when you first look at them. For example, if we brag that we handled ~60 issues in 2011 then that looks like Drupal is insecure ("wow, 60 issues is a lot!") until you dig into the facts that this was across Drupal core and ~5,000 contributed projects.Read more
I made a statistical ranking of the most important Drupal modules, based on how frequently a module is hyperlinked from other modules (similar to how google ranks pages), as of yesterday. It looks like it came up with pretty good results. I posted a list of the top 100 at the following wiki page:
In September 2010 we had a helpful discussion around ways for high-traffic sites, especially sites with external cache layers like Varnish or a CDN, to get usable node access statistics.
That discussion began with Pixel Ping and a Drupal integration module. I've put together the basics of another module now, one that allows you to sort by Facebook shares.Read more
Congratulations people! We're way out ahead of the other CMSs out there right now in the .edu domain space. This is great news for all of us who build sites in higher education! Keep up the great work everyone and make sure to spread the word! If trends are anything like I've witnessed @ Penn State, adoption from distributions is about to ramp up dramatically in the coming months / years.
Continuing on from the last version for Drupal 6 I've attached new statistics that look at Drupal 7's contributors.
These are in order of when the person was mentioned, not number or alphabet.
Please review the list for any mistakes in names. Every time I do this the majority of the time is spent finding and fixing incorrect formatting in commit messages, spelling of usernames, etc.
The data is attached to this node as both an OpenOffice.org spreadsheet or as CSV.
Thought this was an interesting google insight search:
Search term "drupal" in Texas since 2004 is on a steady rise.
