dc.description.abstract[Excerpt] Working at home can provide people with numerous benefits— flexibility in their schedules, fewer commutes, and opportunities to catch up on work. According to the American Time Use Survey (ATUS), about 12 percent of full-time workers with a single job did some work at home on an average day in 2003–07. (See table.) However, the ability to work at home is greatly affected by the nature of one’s work because some types of work can be more easily performed at home than others. ATUS data provide insight into which workers were the most likely to do some work at home, and also yield information on the share of total weekly work hours people spent at their workplace, at home, and at other locations. Data presented here are averages for people age 15 years and over and for all 7 days of the week throughout 2003–07. Also, data refer only to workers with a single job who were employed full time; that is, they usually worked 35 or more hours per week.
