Teleworkforce by the numbers
Friday - 3/5/2010, 4:12pm EST
Using data from 2005, Census found that "an increasing percentage of the workforce is spending at least some time working from home."
Teleworkers were nearly evenly split across gender, with 51 percent female.
Slightly more than half were between the ages of 35 and 54.
The group was overwhelmingly "white non-Hispanic" (82%) and nearly 80% had "some college" or more.
Census also found they made more money than non-teleworkers, but they also worked longer hours. "About 11 percent of those who worked at home for some or all of their workweek reported working 11 or more hours in a typical day in 2005," according to Census, while only "about 7 percent of workers who worked outside the home reported doing so."
More than half were married and a whopping 83.5% lived in a "metropolitan" area.
