There is a growing sense that employers, in their attempts to reduce costs, have increased their use of employment intermediaries and are relying more on alternative staffing arrangements. This article discusses the definitions of contingent workers and alternative work arrangements used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to analyze data from a special supplement to the Current Population Survey, and presents aggregate estimates of workers in each group thus identified. Data from the 1994 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth also are used. The conclusion discusses the overlap between contingent workers and workers in alternative arrangements.
