Case Study: Online Labour Index

The IDN worked with the Oxford Internet Institute to build an interactive dashboard for the Online Labour Index project which seeks to provide the first economic indicator for the online gig economy.

Data for this visualisation is compiled daily from a number of online gig economies and made available via Figshare, and the Shiny app to the right imports this data for interactive display. The code for the visualisation is also hosted on Github.

The project has received favourable coverage in the press, where the dashboard has been particularly useful for journalists to understand and communicate the differences between different markets and categories of online work.
