Question: When it comes to the human cloud, how many temporary workers are taking part in online services and online staffing?

Answer: As far as consumer-related human cloud services, such as Uber, research by Staffing Industry Analysts found 6% of temporary workers earned at least some income from them last year. Another 9% were considering using such services in the next two years. However, the median response from temporary workers when asked how much of their income was derived from this source was 10%.

In terms of business-related human cloud services, such as Upwork, 5% earned some income from them last year and 7% planned to do so in the next two years. The median income from such services was higher than consumer services at 50%.
