The UK UPA recently released a Salary Survey that included a tiny overview of freelancers day rates and ‘salary satisfaction’. (The survey was published in the UX supplement of the recent New Media Age, although UK UPA have since advised me that this is not the 'official' report)
These rates, which could now be considereda reference point for both current and potential freelancers and clients, were drawn from a base of 44 responses. This is a pitifully small sample and no where near the sample size needed to provide any confidence that this data is indicative of the current situation in the field.
We can do better than that.
I've drafted a survey and would love if you can help me gather a much larger sample of data by either completing the survey (if you are a UX Freelancer in the UK) or passing this onto freelancers you know. The survey can be found here: https://www.survs.com/survey/NYGIJ7RS1S
Apologies for cross posting and thanks in advance for your assistance and participation.
