The gig is anything but up for independent work in Delaware. From service-based platforms such as Uber and UberEats to businesses contracting out work, Delaware's gig economy continues to show growth. (Photo credit: Robert Anasch/Unsplash)
Did you know Delaware's gig economy numbers surpass the national average? IPA Associate Director Troy Mix had the opportunity to speak to The News Journal about the growth of independent work in the First State, a topic he recently presented on at the C2ER Annual Conference in St. Louis, Missouri in June of 2019.
Mix told The News Journal that the two main reasons for the growth of the state's gig economies were service-based platforms and apps (like Airbnb and Uber) and the high number of incorporated businesses that call Delaware home.
His recent presentation, Measuring the Gig Economy at the State and Local Level, served as a review of research approaches, resources, and limitations to be considered when investigating gig and independent work on both state and regional scales.
The University of Delaware's Institute for Public Administration (IPA) addresses the policy, planning, and management needs of its partners through the integration of applied research, professional development and the education of tomorrow's leaders.
