Do developers get a monthly breakdown on how many handsets have their app installed? Say 100,000 people deleted the app because an update made it awful or whatever does that get conveyed or is just sales?

Probably not by default, but nothing stopping them building that feature into the app.

Oh so they would build some sort of backend programme that could tell them how many were deleted over a given period? This is nothing more than curiosity.

Nope.  You don't get notified when people install or remove your app.  Couldn't build that functionality into the app either because you can't run any code unless the user executes your app, and there's no opportunity to run code on uninstall either.

So no, no reliable way to do what you're asking about.

what about using push notifications. can you tell when a push notification is no longer going to a device.  
i.e. can you send out a notifcation (assuming they have allowed it) and tell whether a phone has recieved it or not?

Actually you can to a degree, if your application is written to use Push Notifications. There is a daily feed that you can download from the Apple Push Notification servers with a list of all Push Id's that are no longer responding due to the application being uninstalled. Therefore you can remove this Push Id from your database as well.
