considering upwork is a US-based company, I don't find that surprising.

Plus those figures only show a fraction of all registered freelancers, excluding those who have set or had their profiles set to private.

Muhammad, you didn't search properly. You should have clicked Filters button to filter by location. If you do this, the difference is perhaps a bit less, but still US outnumbers India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh combined. However, in all Earned Amount and Job Success categories, from $1+ to $10k+ and both 80%+ and 90%+, US is outnumbered, so there are more US freelancers, but they make less money and have lower Job Success, IF the displayed results are accurate.

I think you are right they market all the resources on growing their business in US, so may be that is why. 

However we don't have any good freelancing companies here, most peopel work through upwork etc.
