 Softmarket Analysis - Freelancing and Freelancer Jobs between 2001 and 2008

Based on the numbers available on the still public jobs we could create a realistic picture of the sofware creation market. We can safely presume that this numbers - at a smaller scale - reflect the trends in the market. Also we can safely estimate the number of successful Freelancers (at least in percentage). The numbers are very interesting - at least because of the clear trends that are shown and also because it clearly raises a flag for both buyer and freelancer. Most freelancers do not even get to their first job. They create accounts, bid on jobs, but never land one successful job. Rent-a-coder has in Marc 2009 approx 35.000 coders that won at least one job won, and has the whopping number of 244667 registered coders!!! wow.. so at less then 15% (!!!) get to win a job!
Also We can clearly see that most successuful Freelancers land under 10 jobs per year and more then 80% of this "successfull" freelancers make less then 1000$ per year. Only as little as 0.5 - 1% of the winning Freelancers make more then 5000$ per year! I know we do not have the private jobs and all the bonuses one freelancer makes in this table. but even if we suppose them at double of the visible income this is not an income that can be sufficient for most of them. And do have in mind that 85 % of freelancers DO NOT EVEN GET a winning bid.
