Hi Stephen,
They're a rough estimation of the number of albums with that genre in the AllMusic universe. So Pop/Rock is larger than Jazz, which is, in turn, larger than Children's music:

In reality, the number of "Holiday" albums may be so small that we couldn't even put the Holiday label on it, but we wanted a graphical representation (not just an alphabetical list) of the primary genres we cover.

(If you are interested in an alphabetical list, it is available in the List View for All Genres): http://beta.allmusic.com/genres/list
