Data Ownership and the Gig Worker in the Gig Economy

In what ways can a platform where gig workers own their data with split-incentives to share non-rival data (transactional data) result in their improved physical, social and financial wellbeing?


An extensive survey of over 4000 gig workers engaged with platforms across tier 1, 2, 3 cities and towns (including Bengaluru, Mumbai, Kochi, Calcutta, Guwahati, Hampi/Dharwad, Solapur, Adoor, Raiganj/Jorhat) and interviews with sector and technology experts laid the groundwork for the study.


Inferences were drawn about the need, structure and mechanics of a platform, managed by a data cooperative, that can enable gig workers to have more agency over their own data (health, occupation, financial and social data).
