It should be noted that these numbers do not necessarily reflect the number of workers in the gig economy. The BLS does not have a formal method for tracking gig workers, nor does it keep tabs on jobs people may consider "non-primary work."
According to a 2018 survey by Edison Research, 24% of the population over age 18 earn income in the gig economy. Of these, 53% use gig work as secondary income. About 51% of men and 56% of women use gig jobs as secondary income.
A study by Gallup in 2018 estimates that 36% of Americans work in the gig economy.
