Learn more about new BLS data on contingent workers and people in alternative employment arrangements. These data were collected through the Contingent Worker Supplement (CWS), a special supplemental survey to the May 2017 monthly Current Population Survey (CPS). Similar supplemental surveys were conducted in February of 1995, 1997,
1999, 2001, and 2005. Contingent workers are people who
do not expect their jobs to last or who report that their jobs are temporary. Alternative employment arrangements include
independent contractors, on-call workers, temporary help agency workers, and
workers provided by contract firms. May 2017 News Release;
