On Nov. 21, Uber released a report on driver earnings, conducted by the company’s head of economic research Jonathan Hall and Princeton economist Alan Krueger. Hall and Krueger used data from a diverse group of drivers in 20 markets. They found most Uber drivers drive 15 hours or fewer per week, and the average Uber driver earns an average wage of $18.75 an hour, before expenses.

(Krueger was previously a paid consultant for Uber, but the company says he was not paid for his work on this study.)
