This dataset consists of summaries of the qualitative interviews with Airbnb hosts (16) and summaries of the qualitative interviews with Uber drivers (15) conducted in Tallinn. All interviews covered the topics of labour process, skills, and social protection. It is not possible to provide the full transcripts nor the NVivo fail with the transcripts due to the nature of consent the interviewees gave. In addition, the dataset contains summary/notes of the focus group interview with Uber drivers and Airbnb host. The focus group guidelines were constructed with the aims to introduce participants to the first results of the analysis of interviews done in Tallinn, and to ask for additional reflections, comments and further experiences related to the topics. Some slides with the main results were prepared and presented to the participants as a stimulus for the discussion. Time was also dedicated to discuss Covid-19 period experiences. For detailed information about the methodology of the qualitative interviews please check the following publications: Kall, K., Roosalu, T., Unt, M., & Ojamäe, L. (2021).
