By and / 10.9.2017

In this new paper,  we estimate that the European App Economy totals 1.89 million jobs as of January 2017, an increase of roughly 15 percent over a year earlier.   In addition, this paper estimates the number of App Economy jobs by country and as a percentage of all jobs on a country-by-country basis. Next, we provide an overall and country-by-country breakdown of App Economy employment by operating system, comparing the number of jobs in the iOS ecosystem with the number of jobs in the Android ecosystem. Finally, we provide a ranking of the top 30 App Economy cities in Europe.
