During March 2018, ORB International ran an independent survey of a representative sample of drivers in London who drive with the Uber app. The results of this poll – together with additional driver data from Uber and data from the Labour Force Survey – contribute to a new paper launched by the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford; School of Economics and Management, Lund University; and Uber. The report, Uber Happy? Work and Well-being in the “Gig Economy” is a working paper to be presented at the 68th Panel Meeting of Economic Policy in October 2018
