Here is the official document: https://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2014.pdf

I also included more historical stats and the most recent metrics from Vancouver in the etherpad version: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/OpenStackDiversity.1 (starts on line 94, pulled from an email I sent the diversity working group)

One measure of active members would be the list of active technical contributors (ATC) which should capture contributors to documentation and development of the projects. We likely need a way to count those contribute in other ways, but for now the ATC is a start.
