    Uber’s rise has been extraordinary, and a survey of drivers reveals much about the demographics powering the $40 billion ride-hailing app.

    In a collaboration of Uber’s Head of Research Jonathan Hall and Princeton University professor Alan Krueger, Uber surveyed 601 active U.S. drivers and analyzed the histories, schedules, and earnings of all drivers using the app since 2012. The results, released earlier this year, are illuminating.

    Uber’s active driver base has grown from basically zero in mid-2012 to over 160,000 at the end of 2014. The number of new drivers has more than doubled every six months for the last two years. Most of that exponential growth has come from the cheaper UberX service, which in most areas lets drivers use their own cars to pick up riders. UberBlack, the commercial-licensed black car service, has seen steady but not exponential growth.
