independent research firm, to conduct a study of the freelance workforce 
within the US with the following objectives: 
Intelligent

Engagement 
1. Quantify the number of people freelancing in the US and their 
economic impact 
2. Assess the state of freelancing, especially current demand for freelance 
services 
3. Gather insights into drivers and barriers impacting freelancing 
4. Gauge the outlook for freelancing, especially among millennials as they 
become the majority of our workforce 
This results deck is organized in sections to detail results on each of these 
objectives.

3. Insights into barriers and drivers 
• 80% of non-freelancers say they would be willing to do work outside their primary job 
to make more money. 
• Earning extra money (but not financial necessity) and schedule flexibility are the top 
drivers of freelancing. 
• Finding work and, correspondingly, income stability are the top barriers to doing more 
freelancing work. 
• 69% of freelancers said technology has made it easier to find freelance work. 
4. The outlook for freelancing 
• 77% of freelancers say the best days are yet ahead for freelancing and 65% said 
freelancing as a career path is more respected today than it was three years ago. 
• Millennials are freelancing more than any other age group. Over a third (38%) of 
Millennials are freelancers. They’re also most optimistic about freelancing – 82% say that 
the best days of freelancing are yet ahead. 
• 36% of moonlighters who have a primary job have thought about quitting to work 
completely independently – this represents 5.1 million people.

Quantifying the 
Freelance Workforce
There are 53 million people freelancing 
in the U.S. 
• Our survey of over 5,000 U.S. workforce members rigorously screened 
respondents to determine the percent who earned freelance income in 
the past year. Results showed that 34% of the U.S. workforce is doing 
freelance activity. 
civilian labor force at 156 million, we estimate that the U.S. workforce 
currently includes 53 million people who are freelancing. 
• A 2006 study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found there 
were 42.6 million “contingent workers” – for nearly a decade that was 
the best guess we’ve had. 
• These freelancers contribute an estimated $715 billion annually in

How did we quantify freelancers? 
Starting with the general U.S. workforce, each respondent ran through a series of 
questions that carefully qualified their employment status and income in order to 
detect freelancing that might otherwise go unrecorded. The following definitions and 
examples explain 5 segments of freelancers captured: 
Intelligent 
9 © Copyright 2014 Daniel J Edelman Inc. 
Engagement 
1. Independent Contractors (40% of the independent workforce / 21.1 million 
professionals) – These “traditional” freelancers don't have an employer and instead do 
freelance, temporary, or supplemental work on a project-to-project basis. 
2. Moonlighters (27% / 14.3 million) - Professionals with a primary, traditional job who also 
moonlight doing freelance work. For example, a corporate-employed web developer who 
does projects for non-profits in the evening. 
3. Diversified Workers (18% / 9.3 million) – People with multiple sources of income from a 
mix of traditional employers and freelance work. For example, someone who works the 
front desk at a dentist’s office 20 hours a week and fills out the rest of his income driving 
for Uber and doing freelance writing.
How did we quantify freelancers? (cont.) 
4. Temporary Workers (10% / 5.5 million) - Individuals with a single employer, client, job, 
or contract project where their employment status is temporary. For example, a business 
strategy consultant working for one startup client on a contract basis for a months-long 
project. 
5. Freelance Business Owners (5% / 2.8 million) – These freelancers have between one 
and five employees, and consider themselves both a freelancer and a business owner. 
For example, a social marketing guru who hires a team of other social marketers to build 
a small agency, but still identifies as a freelancer. 
Intelligent 
In order to qualify, freelancers had to have earned freelance income within the past 12 
months.

Q21. Would you be willing to do additional work outside your primary job(s) if it was available and enabled 
you to make more money? n = 3,332
More than half of freelancers began 
freelancing by choice, not necessity 
“I had the degree and loved the work. Held down one 
career while building this one. Retired from first career 
and now, after 39 years, I only want to freelance part time 
and I do not know when I will give it up.” 
“I am very passionate about what I do, but I have a large 
family. This allows me to be both a stay home parent and 
have a small career. I like what I do, and I want to do it 
my way is another big reason.” 
“I am learning more effectively how to make money by 
several different sources so if one source slows down, I 
can rely on other sources instead of just an employment 
income.” 
“I don't have to worry about losing my job. I don't have 
bosses dangling pink slips over my face and constantly 
threatening to fire me.” 
“I put myself through college, investing on my own, so 
having enough money to live on was not a huge factor, so 
after a few years I decided that pursuing a writing career 
was a 'now or never' venture, and I've been doing it ever 
since.”

  • 9. How did we quantify freelancers? Starting with the general U.S. workforce, each respondent ran through a series of questions that carefully qualified their employment status and income in order to detect freelancing that might otherwise go unrecorded. The following definitions and examples explain 5 segments of freelancers captured: Intelligent 9 © Copyright 2014 Daniel J Edelman Inc. Engagement 1. Independent Contractors (40% of the independent workforce / 21.1 million professionals) – These “traditional” freelancers don't have an employer and instead do freelance, temporary, or supplemental work on a project-to-project basis. 2. Moonlighters (27% / 14.3 million) - Professionals with a primary, traditional job who also moonlight doing freelance work. For example, a corporate-employed web developer who does projects for non-profits in the evening. 3. Diversified Workers (18% / 9.3 million) – People with multiple sources of income from a mix of traditional employers and freelance work. For example, someone who works the front desk at a dentist’s office 20 hours a week and fills out the rest of his income driving for Uber and doing freelance writing.
  • 10. How did we quantify freelancers? (cont.) 4. Temporary Workers (10% / 5.5 million) - Individuals with a single employer, client, job, or contract project where their employment status is temporary. For example, a business strategy consultant working for one startup client on a contract basis for a months-long project. 5. Freelance Business Owners (5% / 2.8 million) – These freelancers have between one and five employees, and consider themselves both a freelancer and a business owner. For example, a social marketing guru who hires a team of other social marketers to build a small agency, but still identifies as a freelancer. Intelligent In order to qualify, freelancers had to have earned freelance income within the past 12 months. 10 © Copyright 2014 Daniel J Edelman Inc.
