The SEAD Platform Work Survey is a comprehensive cross-sectional, internet survey conducted among Platform Workers in Belgium. The primary objective of this survey was to delve into the working and employment conditions of platform workers. To achieve this, we employed various non-probability sampling techniques during data collection, which spanned from February 2022 to February 2023.
To ensure the representativeness of our sample, we compared the socio-demographic characteristics of our respondents to data from the LFS Module on platform work in Belgium, as well as multicountry datasets from COLLEEM II and the ETUI IPWS.
The survey encompassed a wide array of themes, including working and employment conditions, health and well-being, social protection, income security, and career prospects. The final dataset comprises responses from 528 platform workers in Belgium, offering a diverse representation of different types of platform work. This includes 48% food delivery couriers and taxi drivers, 33% platform workers engaged in on-location tasks (e.g., household help, DIY workers, dog walkers, care workers), 15% platform workers handling online creative, professional, and administrative tasks, and 4% involved in online micro-tasking.
