Hacks everywhere

I'm grateful to the Press Gazette for pointing to the Government's Employment By Occupation survey, which suggests a huge 35% growth in the number of hacks in the UK over a year.

In 2015 there were an estimated 64,000 journalists (based on extrapolating from a workforce survey of 100,000 individuals): in 2016, 84,000.  16,000 of the increase came from those describing themselves as 'self-employed'. Of the self-employed total of 34,000, 19,000 said they were working full-time, and 15,000 part-time.
