Q: WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THE REPORTS?

A: THE REPORTS ARE BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE ANNUAL GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY. IT IS THE BIGGEST AND LONGEST RUNNING SURVEY, COVERING THE COWORKING MOVEMENT SINCE LATE 2010. THE LATEST SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN LATE 2017 & EARLY 2018, CALLED THE 2018 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY.

Q: WHAT DO THE REPORTS INCLUDE?

ALL STATISTIC REPORTS INCLUDE AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE TOPIC DESCRIBED, COMPARING RESULTS BY A WIDE SELECTION OF CATEGORIES, ALLOWING YOU TO DISCOVER TOPICS BY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES. YOU WON'T FIND ANYTHING CLOSE TO THOSE REPORTS ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET. AND IF YOU DO, IT'S BASED ON THE GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY AS WELL. THE STATISTIC REPORTS DO NOT INCLUDE ANY INTERPRETATIONS, JUST THE PURE RESULTS REFLECTING THE REALITY BY A WIDE RANGE OF CHARTS.

Q: HOW MANY RESPONDENTS DID THE SURVEY TAKE?

A: THE 2018 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY WAS TAKEN BY 1980 RESPONDENTS. 2017: 1876, 2016: 1679, 2014: 1270, 2013: 1206, 2012: 913. THERE WAS NO 2015 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY. THE FIRST SURVEY WAS ONLY RESPONDED BY MEMBERS, HAD 661 PARTICIPANTS AND IS USUALLY NOT CONSIDERED IN THE REPORTS WHEN COMPARING YEARS. 

Q: WHERE DO THE RESPONDENTS COME FROM?

IT'S CALLED THE GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY SINCE THE SURVEY IS CONDUCTED WORLDWIDE. IN THE 2018 GLOBAL COWORKING SURVEY, AROUND 36% CAME FROM EUROPE, ANOTHER 35% FROM NORTH AMERICA, 13% FROM ASIA, 8% FROM SOUTH AMERICA, 4% FROM AFRICA, AND 4% FROM OCEANIA, 0.1% OF THE RESPONDENTS HAVE NOT BEEN APPLICABLE. 

Q: HOW IS THE SURVEY CONDUCTED?

THE SURVEY IS CONDUCTED ONLINE BY THE END OF EACH YEAR AND IS DISTRIBUTED AMONG & BY COWORKING SPACES AROUND THE WORLD. THE GOAL OF THE SURVEY IS TO REFLECT THE REALITY, NOT WHAT WE WISH TO SEE. FOR THAT REASON, ALL RESPONDENTS CAN FILL IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE ANONYMOUSLY. THAT WAY, WE EXPECT MORE REALISTIC ANSWERS THAN IN NON-ANONYMIZED SURVEYS. THIS METHOD IS PROVEN TO WORK QUITE WELL, AT LEAST IN COUNTRIES THAT ALSO GUARANTEE PRIVACY RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THE FEW PERCENTAGE OF RESPONDENTS WHO TAKE THE SURVEY SEVERAL TIMES, OR JUST CLICK THROUGH IT, ARE NOT CONSIDERED BY BEHAVIOURAL CHARACTERISTICS.

Q: AREN'T THE NATIONAL DIFFERENCES AMONG COUNTRIES TOO BIG IN ORDER TO REPRESENT THE COWORKING INDUSTRY GLOBALLY?

NO, NOT REALLY. THERE ARE SURELY NATIONAL DIFFERENCES AS MENTIONED ABOVE, BUT ACTUALLY THE DIFFERENCES WITHIN A COUNTRY ON A REGIONAL BASIS ARE MUCH MUCH BIGGER THAN BETWEEN COWORKING SPACES OF DIFFERENT COUNTRIES WHEN COMPARING THEM BY THE NUMBER OF INHABITANTS LOCAL TO A COWORKING SPACE. FOR EXAMPLE, COWORKING SPACES IN NEW YORK CITY, LONDON, BERLIN, MOSCOW OR SHANGHAI HAVE MORE IN COMMON THAN WITH COWORKING SPACES 100 KM OR MILES OUTSIDE OF THESE CITIES. IN SHORT, THERE ARE BIGGER DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SMALL & BIG COWORKING SPACES, BIGGER DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COWORKING SPACES THAN ARE RUN BY SELF-EMPLOYED OPERATORS & XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. FOR THIS REASON, WE PROVIDE YOU WITH RESULTS THAT ARE COMPARED BY THOSE AND MANY MORE CATEGORIES.

Q: WHY ARE THE REPORTS QUITE AFFORDABLE?

 

Q: HOW OFTEN WILL THE REPORTS BE UPDATED?

THE GOAL IS TO UPDATE THEM EVERY OTHER YEAR. THE ANALYSIS OF EACH TOPIC IS QUITE TIME CONSUMING. FOR THIS REASON, THERE WON'T BE ANNUAL UPDATES OF THE SAME TOPIC. INSTEAD, WE FOCUS ON A WIDER SELECTION OF (NEW) TOPICS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN COVERED OR ANALYSED YET. 

Q: DOES THE MAIN COLOR OF EACH REPORT HAVE ANY MEANING?

YES. THE RED REPORTS FOCUS ON COWORKING SPACE MEMBERS AND ARE MAINLY RESPONDED BY MEMBERSWHILE THE GREEN REPORTS FOCUS ON THE COWORKING SPACES ITSELF, AND ARE MAINLY RESPONDED BY OPERATORS AND STAFF MEMBERS OF COWORKING SPACES.

Q: CAN I USE SLIDES OR RESULTS OF THE REPORTS IN MY OWN PRESENTATIONS OR MY OWN REPORTS?

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE XXXXX
