You can't really due to the variables involved.

However, distrowatch attempts to track page hits:

http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity

It isn't really a good measure (and there isn't one) but it is the best you'll find.

They also have a various other statistics but as they note the above is a "light hearted" attempt. It should NOT be taken as gospel.

There was a ranking page earlier this year, showing distros, desktop environs, and software ratings, like awards.

This is what you're looking for:

I always have difficulty in finding this. You can't get there from the home page: I had to search for a post by me including the word "abomination"!
