I was just discussing this with a friend-According to Wikipedia the Federation is composed of " more than 150 member planets and thousands of colonies spread across 8,000 light years of the Milky Way Galaxy".
The bolded part has no basis at all in canon. Lily asked Picard how many planets are in the Federation, he answered 150. In context, it seems clear that that number refers to both homeworlds and colonies.
Although non-canon too, pre-release promotional stuff for STXI said the 23rd century Federation consisted of 130something planets and 700 colonies.
