Are there any statistics available regarding the number of lurkers versus contributors on sites with community-generated content?

I'm thinking primarily of social sites and wikis, but would appreciate data similar data about lurkers vs. commenters on sites with otherwise non-community-generated content. Even participation statistics on the metadata level, like song plays vs. song ratings would be helpful.
The PDF about the relative contribution of Wikipedia "Elite" linked here
is a good example of the kind of data I'm having trouble finding. Do you remember seeing anything else like this?
