iLabour – Online Labour Strife (Oxford Internet Institute, Oxford, UK)
Since 2016, the Online Labour Index has measured the supply and demand of online labour across the world by tracking the number of projects and tasks across five of the largest English-language platforms (about 70% of the market by traffic) in real time. Since 2017, the iLabour project also records, analyses and visualises worker voice and collective action online, by tracking the geographical location from which dissatisfaction is expressed on the forums of the platforms. The data and visualisations are available under an open access licence. The iLabour project is funded by the European Research Council from September 2015 until August 2020 (see more information).
