What May Be Driving Growth in the Gig Economy

Component ID: #ti1249595674

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomed Kristin Sandusky as she presented, “What May Be Driving Growth in the Gig Economy?”

This webinar describes challenges to measuring the rise and significance of the “gig economy” and explores what publicly available data tell us about the prototypical gig sector – ridesharing.

She demonstrates how combining these data with LEHD wage records sheds light on traits of these workers, how they use ridesharing to enhance their earnings, and the economic factors that push or pull them into gig work.
