I don't know, maaaaaaaany things.
1) I'm confused: first you ask about community initiatives then you list 
activities by chapters and the like. "Community initiative" makes me 
think of edit drives, custom tools and scripts, processes, guidelines, 
2) Are you interested in last year or all our history?
3) Is it really impossible to look for the impact on the statistics 
(assuming you're speaking of eiting activity) and then ask what caused 
the impact? How much big but indetected/undetectable impact is there? 
(There must be contrasting forces for that.) Are you interested in 
impact that can't be even seen in statistics?
