The analysis of the evolution of the number of media workers shows a slow but steady decline over the course of 5 years. From 16.649 workers registered in 2011, we stand at 16.169 in December 2015. When separating employees of media companies from independents, one can notice a steeper decline for employees, losing over 1.000 individuals. The number of self-employed individuals on the other hand grows year by year from 459 in 2011 to 1.344 individuals in 2015. Find out more in Deliverable 4.2a.
