THE 2020 FREELANCER INCOME SURVEY
Payoneer conducted a global study of 7,000 freelancers from over 150 countries including emerging markets such as Pakistan, Philippines and Ukraine to learn more about their average income, hourly rates and skills. Survey respondents provided us with unique insights into what makes them successful, what rates they’re charging and how they operate.
Younger generations like Gen-Zers and Millennials are a vast majority of today’s global freelance workforce. In Southeast Asia, 82% of workers are under the age of 35, compared to only 47% in North America. On the other hand, we found that freelancers over the age of 55 aka “boomers”, earn more than twice as much as their younger peers.
