Contingent and Alternative Employment Survey Announcement
A news release summarizing the contingent and alternative employment arrangements data from this survey will be published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on June 7, 2018, at 10:00 A.M. Eastern Time. The Census Bureau will post a public use microdata file from this survey at a later date.
Four new questions were added to the May 2017 Contingent Worker Supplement. These questions were designed to identify individuals who found short tasks or jobs through an app or website and were paid through the same app or website. These data will not be included in the June 7th release. BLS continues to evaluate these data and plans to publish the findings from this research at a later date.
The News Release containing the May 2017 data will look very similar to the February 2005 News Release including table layouts.
