24% of Employed Workers Did Some or All of Their Work at Home in 2010

A piece from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Editor's Desk shows that 24% of employed Americans did at least some of their work from home in 2010, as compared with 83% who did some or all of their work at their workplace. Employed men and women had similar distributions, with 22.9 percent of men and 24.5 percent of women working at least partly from home in 2010.

Multiple jobholders were roughly twice as likely to do work from home than single jobholders (39 percent to 22 percent); and perhaps unsurprisingly, self-employed workers were over three times more likely than wage and salary workers (64 percent to 19 percent). And while only 10 percent of employed persons over 25 years of age with less than a high school diploma worked at least some of the time from home in 2010, the percentage was larger among those with a bachelor's degree or higher, reaching 36 percent.

The piece summarizes findings from the American Time Use Survey.
