The Crowdworking Monitor is a research project launched by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs with the purpose of investigating size, socio-demographics and characteristics of the platform economy in Germany. In its first published report it made use of data gathered amongst 375,000 participants via an online survey tool, giving insights into crowd worker’s tasks, working hours, remuneration, and job satisfaction. The online survey is continually conducted and distributed via a range of websites, blogs and portals and will result in a series of reports, of which the first two reports were published in 2018 and 2019. The goal of the survey is to contribute to the improvement of the thus far limited data on crowd working in Germany.
