The report hightlights the large proportion of creative workers in the creative industries who are freelance - 47 per cent - compared with 15 per cent across the workforce as a whole.
The report draws on evidence from 700 freelancers and around 50 organisations that use them to demonstrate who these workers are and what they do for the fastest growing sector of the British economy.
The actress Imelda Staunton spoke of her personal experience of being self-employed at the launch at the National Theatre, London, urging government to read the report to understand the sector and its workers better. She said: "The government, hopefully, with this report, will be able to understand what this profession and what the creative industries are about, and what it needs to be the very best it can be. I hope the government takes this home and reads it rather carefully."
