I wrote a script to gather from the WoW armory site. This data includes all active players in the top 5000 teams 2v2 of each battlegroup (over 56000 players). One of the criticisms of other lists of the top 1% of players is the small sample size, the data in this post uses a much larger sample size to produce an average rating for each class. The data only includes players who played more than 10 games in the previous week.
The raw data can be found here

This data shows the average ranting of each class for all active 2v2 players in the top 5000 teams of each battlegroup. I had run this script about a month ago and the disparity between the stronger and weaker classes was worse then. Rogues and priests have been brought closer to average, but melee and healers in general are still dominant. Ranged dps classes are struggling and are in about the same place they were a month ago.
This data shows the number of players of each class for all active 2v2 players in the top 5000 teams of each battlegroup. The data suggests that players who play classes with lower average rating are playing arena less.
