Which Jobs Are Done from Home? Evidence from the American time use survey

Which Jobs Are Done from Home? Evidence from the American time use survey

by Lena Hensvik (Uppsala University), Thomas Le Barbanchon (Bocconi University) and Roland Rathelot (University of Warwick)

Which jobs are more likely to be affected by mobility restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic? This paper uses American Time Use Survey data to measure the share of the work hours that are spent at home for different job categories. We compute and provide home-working shares by occupation (US census classification, SOC and international ISCO classification), and by industry (US census classification, NAICS and international ISIC classification).
