P.S. SUCCESS MAGAZINE (conducted online by Harris Poll) surveyed more than 2,000 U.S. adults ages 18 and over from May 17-19, 2016, with the overall goal of helping to define the elements and impact of the YouEconomy. The poll asked questions exploring topics including the types of work these adults have earned income from during the past year; whether the work was a primary or supplemental source of income; and how they are engaging with, using, and/or purchasing YouEconomy products and services and at what frequency. First and foremost: The YouEconomy is very real. One-third of U.S. adults (33%) have earned income in the YouEconomy in the past 12 months. Most commonly, about one in five adults (22%) have sold their own items through an online platform. About one in ten adults have worked as an independent contractor/consultant (12%), or worked for themselves or managed a small firm or business with five or fewer people (10%). Fewer have rented out assets they own – such as a spare room, car, clothes or tools – (5%), worked as a ride-sharing driver (4%), or worked as an independent representative through direct selling (4%). Of those working in the YouEconomy – about 7 in 10 (71%) say this income is supplemental. Only about three in ten (29%) rely on their YouEconomy earnings as a primary source of income.
