I was mainly thinking to the number of people on the #haskell IRC
channel, the growing number of packages on Hackage, and the growing
number of Haskell-related job announcement.

It would be interesting to know some other sources: number of people
with Haskell-related repos on Github and other hostings, number of
Haskell-related blog owners, number of attendees to e.g. Utrecht
summer school on FP, ...

Probably blog owners see a rise in the amount of visits they receive
on their Haskell-related posts, but that would be also because their
particular blog just become more well-known from people already
interested in Haskell.
