How much do Uber drivers earn?

The below chart shows a distribution of weekly earnings of Uber drivers who participated in our October survey. The chart only shows drivers who exclusively drive for Uber.

Uber Weekly Gross Earnings Distribution

The y axis is the number of drivers who reported earning, on a weekly basis, within the range plotted on the x axis. As you can see, the average weekly earnings is skewed quite low. The 50th percentile of earnings is $250 per week.

Another way to put it is this. If you earn $125 per week, you're already higher than 25% of surveyed drivers. If you earned $450 per week you're higher than 75% of drivers. And if you earned $845 per week, you're higher than 95% of drivers.
