With an ever-growing number of platforms and vast user bases, policy makers are increasingly interested in the sharing economy.

One of our main focusses is developing a definition that is suitable for statistical measurement while showing the diverse range of sharing economy businesses and keeping pace with innovation. During this session, they'll explore how the Office of National Statistics will go about measuring the size of the UK sharing economy.
