Working at home: An update

Working at home: An update. Canadian Social Trends Volume 90.
Anne-Marie Rolfe's insight:
Summary

Between 2000 and 2008, the proportion of employees working at home rose one percentage point to 11.2%. However, there was considerable variation in the incidence of working at home by level of education, occupation, industry and number of hours worked. The employees most likely to work at home were university graduates, managers (especially in the health care and social assistance sector) and professionals. Participation was highest in the professional, scientific and technical services sector.

Even though about 15% of all workers in Canada are self-employed, they account for about one-half of those who work at home. In 2008, 60% of self-employed workers did paid work at home: 67% for women and 56% for men.

The three most common reasons given by employees for working at home were work requirements (25%), better working conditions (23%) and home being their usual place of work (18%).

The data also show that, in urban areas, workers who lived farther from their workplaces were more likely to work at home than those who lived closer. Those living outside urban areas were less likely to work at home.
