Hello! Can someone please tell me the percentage of freelance translators compared to employed ones? I know it's a large percentage but I would like to know if someone has some statistics. Thank you!

CIOL / ITI survey Dec 8, 2013

The joint CIOL / ITI rates and salaries survey in 2011 found a split amongst respondents of 86% freelance versus 14% employed but the Common Sense Advisory www.commonsenseadvisory.com/ might have some insights on this too.
