Freelancer Study 2024 results

May 31

German Freelancermap published a highly anticipated Freelancer Study 2024 which rightly belongs among Europe’s top surveys focused on freelance economy.

Even though it is not statistically representative (85% respondents were men, 74% senior experts, €98 hourly rate on average), it offers invaluable insights into livelihoods of more affluent European freelancers. Here are some highlights:

  • 57% had a gross revenue of over €100,000 (31% over €150,000)
  • €60,508 was the average net profit
  • €1,098 is set aside on average each month for retirement
  • 42% have only one client at a time
  • monthly income fluctuate by more than 25% for 42% of the respondents
  • 40% rely on active project acquisition (i.e. active sales and marketing)

See the final PDF report for more data, insights, beautiful visuals and graphs, and quotes by the panel of selected experts.

Great job, Freelancermap and Stefania Volpe nailed it again!
