Where are the remote workers?
How do you get to work?
If you put on your slippers and walk to your balcony chair or kitchen table, congratulations on being part of the 17.9% of people who work from home, according to the Census Bureau’s latest data.
This is a far smaller share of the population than you might assume after reading the average magazine article on COVID-19 fears or return-to-work anxiety, but it also hides some massive variation geographically. In some parts of the country in 2021, 1 out of every 3 workers was at home. In much of the nation, the figure was just 1 out of every 20.
