Im not aware of a representative survey. But if you're not after
reliable numbers, try combining statistics on the total number of
linux users world wide [1] with the percentage of Arch users [2].

Tadaa, 2,4M Arch users.

If that's not enough for you, just switch sources and use [3] instead of
[2] to get 24M Arch users.

Distrowatch [4] might actually be a more useful resource.
