GENERAL RESULTS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS
THIS CHART REPRESENTS THE GLOBAL AVERAGE AND THE RESPONSES ARE DOMINATED BY COWORKING SPACES IN
THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE WHERE MOST OF COWORKING SPACES ARE LOCATED. FOR THE SAME REASON, THE
RESULTS ARE ALSO STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY THE CHRISTIAN CULTURE. THE RESULTS CAN STRONGLY DIFFER IN
REGIONS WITH A DIFFERENT CULTURE AND GEOGRAPHIC AREA. IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, DECEMBER MARKS A
LOW AS WELL. PEAKS ARE AUGUST- OCTOBER & MARCH. INDEPENDENT OF THE CULTURES AND GEOGRAPHICAL
LOCATION, NEW MEMBERS USUALLY SIGN UP IN THE WEEKS FOLLOWING POPULAR HOLIDAYS IN THEIR REGIONS.

SURVEY
GENERAL 2017 RESULT
RESPONSES FOR THIS DATA CANNOT BE COMPARED TO PREVIOUS YEARS DUE TO MINOR DIFFERENCES IN THE QUESTION PRESENTED. IN PREVIOUS
YEARS, WE HAD ASKED MEMBERS: "HOW DID YOU FIRST HEAR ABOUT YOUR COWORKING SPACE" AND IN 2017 WE ASKED MEMBERS: "HOW DID
YOU FIND YOUR CURRENT COWORKING SPACE BEFORE YOU BECAME A MEMBER?" PRIOR TO 2017, MEMBERS WERE ALSO ALLOWED TO PROVIDE
MULTIPLE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION, WHEREAS IN 2017 MEMBERS WERE ASKED TO PROVIDE JUST ONE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION. DESPITE THESE
CHANGES, 'WORD OF MOUTH' REMAINED THE MOST POPULAR RESPONSE TO BOTH QUESTIONS.

*'SCOOTERS’ AND ‘MOTOR BIKES’ WERE NOT OPTIONAL ANSWERS BEFORE 2017 & IN **2012: "OTHER" WAS NOT AN OPTION YET.
PLEASE NOTE: DIFFERENCES MAY OCCUR DUE TO THE TIME AT WHICH THE SURVEY WAS TAKEN: THE 2017 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN NOVEMBER AND
DECEMBER 2016, WHILST THE 2016 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2015. GENERALLY, TRANSPORT TYPES CAN STRONGLY DEPEND ON
CHANGING WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT ALSO INFLUENCE COMMUTING TIMES.

(ARITHMETIC) MEAN, 5% TRIMMED MEAN, MEDIAN…
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT AVERAGE VALUES? ISN’T THERE A SIMPLER WAY?
SURE THERE IS! BUT REDUCING A SKEWED DEVELOPMENT TO A SINGLE VALUE WOULD NOT PROVIDE AN ACCURATE
REFLECTION OF THE COWORKING LANDSCAPE, WHICH HAS BECOME MORE DIVERSE OVER RECENT YEARS. IN FACT, THE
VALUES PRESENTED HEREIN ARE THREE OF DOZENS OF STATISTICAL MEASURES; SO, WE ARE STILL KEEPING IT QUITE
SIMPLE. THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN IS THE MOST COMMON AVERAGE TO REPORT CENTRAL TENDENCIES; HOWEVER, IT IS
NOT ROBUST IF IT IS INFLUENCED BY OUTLIERS (EXTREME CASES, WHICH ARE MUCH LARGER OR SMALLER THAN MOST OF
THE OTHERS). FOR EXAMPLE, THINK OF AN UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME, WHERE 10% OF PEOPLE IN YOUR
COUNTRY “EARN” 90% OF ALL INCOME. IF YOU TOOK THE MEAN OF THAT INCOME, THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WOULD SEE
A HUGE GAP BETWEEN THE MEAN VALUE AND THE AMOUNT IN THEIR BANK ACCOUNTS. HENCE, IT WOULD NOT REFLECT
THEIR REALITY. THE COWORKING MARKET IS, OF COURSE, NOT THAT UNEQUAL; HOWEVER, THERE ARE COWORKING
SPACES (CHAINS) THAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED AS OUTLIERS, AND ARE MUCH BIGGER THAN MOST OTHER COWORKING
SPACES. FOR THIS REASON, WE PROVIDED TWO MORE AVERAGE VALUES: THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN CUTS THE HIGHEST
AND LOWEST 5% OF CASES, AND REFLECTS THE AVERAGE REALITY MUCH BETTER THAN THE ARITHMETIC MEAN; THE
MEDIAN SEPARATES THE UPPER HALF FROM THE LOWER HALF (IT IS SIMPLY THE VALUE IN THE MIDDLE). IT IS IMPORTANT
TO NOTE THAT MOST OF STATISTICS PRESENTED HEREIN ARE GROUPED, AND PRESENT THEIR SHARE TO REFLECT THE
WHOLE REALITY.
THE 2017 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY PAGE 30
HOW TO READ THE STATISTICS?
HOW ARE THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN, 5% TRIMMED MEAN, AND MEDIAN CALCULATED?
THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN IS THE SUM OF A COLLECTION OF NUMBERS DIVIDED BY THE NUMBER OF VALUES IN THE
COLLECTION. CONFUSED? IMAGINE YOU HAVE TEN NUMBERS… NOW ADD THEM UP, AND THEN DIVIDE BY TEN:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = 58/10 = 5.8
THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN FIRST REMOVES THE HIGHEST AND LOWEST 5% OF A COLLECTION OF NUMBERS, SUMS THE REST,
AND DIVIDES THIS TOTAL BY THE NUMBER OF VALUES IN THE COLLECTION:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = 38/8 = 4.75 = 4.8 (ROUNDED)
THE MEDIAN IS THE MIDDLE NUMBER OF A COLLECTION OF VALUES. IT DIVIDES THE UPPER HALF BY THE LOWER HALF. IN
THIS CASE, WE HAVE AN EVEN NUMBER OF VALUES (TWO MIDDLE NUMBERS), WHICH ARE SUMED AND THEN DIVIDED. THIS
GIVES A FULLY TRUNCATED OR TRIMMED MEAN:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = (4 + 5)/2 = 4.5
SIDE NOTE: THE GREATER THE DIFFERENCE AMONG THE VALUES, THE GREATER THE COLLECTION OF UNEQUALLY
DISTRIBUTED VALUES. IF YOU’D LIKE TO CONSIDER ONLY A SINGLE NUMBER, GO WITH THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN.
HOWEVER, IT'S BETTER TO USE THE SHARE OF GROUPS PRESENTED IN THE CHARTS.

PRIOR TO 2017, MEMBERS WERE ALSO ALLOWED TO PROVIDE MULTIPLE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION, WHEREAS IN 2017 MEMBERS WERE ASKED TO PROVIDE JUST ONE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION.

  • 30. (ARITHMETIC) MEAN, 5% TRIMMED MEAN, MEDIAN… WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT AVERAGE VALUES? ISN’T THERE A SIMPLER WAY? SURE THERE IS! BUT REDUCING A SKEWED DEVELOPMENT TO A SINGLE VALUE WOULD NOT PROVIDE AN ACCURATE REFLECTION OF THE COWORKING LANDSCAPE, WHICH HAS BECOME MORE DIVERSE OVER RECENT YEARS. IN FACT, THE VALUES PRESENTED HEREIN ARE THREE OF DOZENS OF STATISTICAL MEASURES; SO, WE ARE STILL KEEPING IT QUITE SIMPLE. THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN IS THE MOST COMMON AVERAGE TO REPORT CENTRAL TENDENCIES; HOWEVER, IT IS NOT ROBUST IF IT IS INFLUENCED BY OUTLIERS (EXTREME CASES, WHICH ARE MUCH LARGER OR SMALLER THAN MOST OF THE OTHERS). FOR EXAMPLE, THINK OF AN UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME, WHERE 10% OF PEOPLE IN YOUR COUNTRY “EARN” 90% OF ALL INCOME. IF YOU TOOK THE MEAN OF THAT INCOME, THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WOULD SEE A HUGE GAP BETWEEN THE MEAN VALUE AND THE AMOUNT IN THEIR BANK ACCOUNTS. HENCE, IT WOULD NOT REFLECT THEIR REALITY. THE COWORKING MARKET IS, OF COURSE, NOT THAT UNEQUAL; HOWEVER, THERE ARE COWORKING SPACES (CHAINS) THAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED AS OUTLIERS, AND ARE MUCH BIGGER THAN MOST OTHER COWORKING SPACES. FOR THIS REASON, WE PROVIDED TWO MORE AVERAGE VALUES: THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN CUTS THE HIGHEST AND LOWEST 5% OF CASES, AND REFLECTS THE AVERAGE REALITY MUCH BETTER THAN THE ARITHMETIC MEAN; THE MEDIAN SEPARATES THE UPPER HALF FROM THE LOWER HALF (IT IS SIMPLY THE VALUE IN THE MIDDLE). IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT MOST OF STATISTICS PRESENTED HEREIN ARE GROUPED, AND PRESENT THEIR SHARE TO REFLECT THE WHOLE REALITY. THE 2017 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY PAGE 30 HOW TO READ THE STATISTICS?
  • 31. HOW ARE THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN, 5% TRIMMED MEAN, AND MEDIAN CALCULATED? THE (ARITHMETIC) MEAN IS THE SUM OF A COLLECTION OF NUMBERS DIVIDED BY THE NUMBER OF VALUES IN THE COLLECTION. CONFUSED? IMAGINE YOU HAVE TEN NUMBERS… NOW ADD THEM UP, AND THEN DIVIDE BY TEN: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = 58/10 = 5.8 THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN FIRST REMOVES THE HIGHEST AND LOWEST 5% OF A COLLECTION OF NUMBERS, SUMS THE REST, AND DIVIDES THIS TOTAL BY THE NUMBER OF VALUES IN THE COLLECTION: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = 38/8 = 4.75 = 4.8 (ROUNDED) THE MEDIAN IS THE MIDDLE NUMBER OF A COLLECTION OF VALUES. IT DIVIDES THE UPPER HALF BY THE LOWER HALF. IN THIS CASE, WE HAVE AN EVEN NUMBER OF VALUES (TWO MIDDLE NUMBERS), WHICH ARE SUMED AND THEN DIVIDED. THIS GIVES A FULLY TRUNCATED OR TRIMMED MEAN: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 19 = (4 + 5)/2 = 4.5 SIDE NOTE: THE GREATER THE DIFFERENCE AMONG THE VALUES, THE GREATER THE COLLECTION OF UNEQUALLY DISTRIBUTED VALUES. IF YOU’D LIKE TO CONSIDER ONLY A SINGLE NUMBER, GO WITH THE 5% TRIMMED MEAN. HOWEVER, IT'S BETTER TO USE THE SHARE OF GROUPS PRESENTED IN THE CHARTS. HOW TO READ THE STATISTICS?
