Where did the most people work from home during the pandemic? This question is answered by FinancialForce.com, who analyzed data from the 2016-2020 American Community Survey to create a graphic of the 20 metropolitan, and the 20 micropolitan, statistical areas in the United States that had the highest percentage of people that worked from home throughout 2020; when the pandemic was just beginning. If you’re wondering how these early pandemic numbers compare to that of the pre-pandemic era, well this graphic addresses that question as well. It compares every statistical area’s work from home percentages in 2019 to the 2020 percentages to see which areas had the largest increase in people working from home during this time. So, to answer the original question, most people worked from home in Boulder, Colorado where 16.1% of the population worked remotely in 2020. Although when it came to the smaller micropolitan areas, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts has Boulder beat with 17.7% of its population having worked from home during the first year of the pandemic. Are you one of the many Americans that worked from home during this time?
