Increased resume effectiveness by 30%!

I would like to add concrete numbers to my resume but I'm at a loss for how to go about asking for things like user retention rates, revenue, hours saved by the tool I helped build, etc. How can I ask for this information in a business appropriate way?

For example, a line that might appear on my ideal resume: "Increased user retention by 32% in the first quarter"
This summer I'll be working as a (web) design intern at a political company in DC, bringing my total number of internships up to three, with the last two spent in software development positions. I plan to start work in The Real World when I graduate next year.
What is the best way to ask for facts that I can put on my resume? Who should I talk to so that I get the clearest answer? When should I ask this question, at the end of my internship before I leave, after I leave, or another time entirely?
