I thought the numbers in this article were definitely worth reading and sharing.

for a large community of practice (more than 50,000 members):

  • 10 per cent of members visit
  • 15 per cent of visitors contribute (1.5% of members overall)
  • each contributor leaves between two and three contributions

for a smaller community set up to meet a need or complete a project:

  • 75 per cent of members visit
  • 50 per cent of visitors contribute
  • each contributor leaves between four and five contributions

For a learning group set up around a ftf event, where all participants are expected to visit as part of the event:

  • 100 per cent of members visit
  • 100 per cent of visitors contribute
  • each contributor leaves more than five contributions

Aside, Nick Milton is a fantastic person to follow for anyone building an internal community of any variety.
