Measurement of Digital Platform Workers Feedback Survey

Closed 30 Nov 2022

Opened 14 Oct 2022


The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), like most national statistical organisations, is working to expand its statistics on relatively new and emerging forms of employment, including digital platform workers.

While digital platform workers and their work have always been included within existing labour statistics on employment and hours, they are a relatively small group of workers who have not been separately identifiable.

Specifically measuring digital platform workers and their working arrangements will provide insights into the extent to which this working arrangement is used in Australia, how this is changing over time, the nature of digital platform work and the characteristics of digital platform workers.

The ABS is seeking feedback on its proposed approach to measuring digital platform work and workers in 2022-23, to inform plans for 2023-24.
