Description

As communication and information technologies advance, workers are increasingly able to perform work at home. Since work is often more than simply a means of making a living, but tends to dictate how people organize their lives, changes in work patterns have both economic and social implications. 

The data used in this report primarily come from two different surveys administered by the U.S. Census Bureau. The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is a nationally representative longitudinal survey of about 50,000 households. Since the mid-1990s, the Work Schedule Topical Module of SIPP has included questions specifically designed to estimate the number of people who work at home at least one full day during a typical workweek. One of the goals of this module is to capture work done at home instead of another location for employed respondents who are at least 15 years old. These data are the source of a large, detailed set of tabulations, some of which are available in this report.

Audience

The characteristics of home-based workers is of interest to researchers and policy makers, including those in the fields of transportation, employment, planning, and housing.
