-Perhaps surprisingly, workers were slightly more apt to have standard work arrangements in 2017 than in 2005.
-Older workers are more likely to be independent contractors than any other age group in both 2005 and 2017.

Perhaps surprisingly, workers were slightly more apt to have standard work arrangements in 2017 than in 2005. In 2017, the total share of the labor force working in nonstandard arrangements was 10.1 percent, down from 10.9 percent in 2005.
The share who worked as independent contractors fell to 6.9 percent from 7.4 percent.
Older workers are more likely to be independent contractors than any other age group in both 2005 and 2017. However, the share of all older workers who are independent contractors declined from 10.8 percent of those ages 55–64 and 18.3 percent of those ages 65+ in 2005, to 9.3 percent and 16.2 percent, respectively, in 2017.
