Background: The 2018 Global Coworking Survey ran online from November 8, 2017 to January 30, 2018. 1980 people filled in the questionnaire. The final results are analyzed using IBM SPSS, and are checked using quality standards to remove bots or fake participants. Those respondents are not considered in the analysis nor in the counting of participants. 

Participants by groups: coworking spaces (operators or staff members): N=1172, coworking members: N=591, planned/future coworking spaces: N=116. Remaining participants are either former coworking members or people who have never worked in a coworking space. 

36% of the respondents came from Europe, 35% from North America, 13% from Asia, 8% from South America, 4% from Africa and 4% from Oceania (mainly Australia).

The Global Coworking Survey is financed through two sources:

Firstly, the main supporters financially support the conduct of the survey. They also allow a basic analysis which is available for free. They do not influence the analysis or the results. They are only shown and linked in the publishing for their support. Thanks to them!

A much more detailed analysis takes much much much more time, but is interesting for a much lower number of people. Sounds like a bad correlation, right? For that reason, the Global Coworking Survey is secondly supported by the people who buy these more elaborated reports with detailed grouped analyses. Please visit coworkingstatistics.com to receive those e-booklets. But crucial main findings of these reports are also published in free articles.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the Global Coworking Survey by buying these report or by taking and distributing the survey. The survey wouldn't be possible without them.
