This inaugural report reveals that a large number of American workers identify as "independent" – 16 million and growing. In years to come, this report will serve as the baseline for measuring the ebbs and flows of the self-employed sector.

These workers may take on many titles: consultant, freelancer, contractor, temp, on-call worker, etc., but they all share a goal of greater flexibility, control and self-reliance. In 2011, 80% of independent workers are satisfied and plan to stay independent.

The new “take charge” workforce spans geographies, genders and generations. Independent workers are active in every state; women are more than half of all independents and adults from their mid-20s to 65+ are becoming independent.

A major change is taking place within our nation’s workforce and MBO Partners has captured it all in this State of Independence in America Report.
