Self-employed Americans and those whom they hired accounted for 44 million jobs in 2014, according to the Pew Research Center.

“The self-employed, 14.6 million in all, represented 10% of the nation’s 146 million workers, and they in turn provided jobs for 29.4 million other workers,” the Pew Research Center said. The center analyzed U.S. Census Bureau data.

The self-employed were found most in the fields of agriculture, forestry and fishing; construction; and professional and business services.
