ABSTRACT. We draw on a substantial body of theoretical and empirical research on the increasing casualization of the gig economy, and using and replicating data from Edelman Intelligence, Gallup, Statista, U.S. Census Bureau, and YouGov Omnibus, we performed analyses and made estimates regarding type of gig economy work by income earned from gig economy in the past 12 months (UK, %), the divide between independent and contingent gig workers (% strongly agree), percentage of gig workers in the U.S. (by age), number and growth of businesses without paid employees (by industry), and the last time individuals participated in skill-related education or training (%). Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the data and test the proposed conceptual model.
