Member Demographics - Members of Coworking Spaces - Part 1 - Global Coworking Survey

3,736 views

Published on

Only people in tech-jobs work in coworking spaces? Think again. Not only do the coworking spaces keep changing, but also the members who work in them. In this report we’ll summarize the key demographics of these members. What are their jobs? Is the ratio of freelancers declining further? Do people who value flexible working hours in their jobs also have shorter relationships in their private lives? And what’s the average age of the members anyway? The following results of the Global Coworking Survey will give you some answers.

Page 3: number of members are as of October 2016 & October 2017
