Home-based Workers

Component ID: #ti1149532953

Work at home refers to a worker’s lack of travel from home to a separate workplace. The American Community Survey includes a question on means of transportation to work asked of those ages 16 and over who were employed and at work in the previous week. Individuals working at home are those who reported ‘‘work at home’’ on this question. More information, including a copy of the ACS questionnaire is available on the ACS page.

The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) includes work schedule questions that are asked of employed respondents who are least 15 years old. The work schedule section includes detailed questions related to respondents’ employment history and job details, including whether respondents worked at home during a typical week in the previous month and whether there were any days when the respondent worked entirely at home. More information, including a data dictionary containing the exact questions contained within the topical module, is available from the SIPP page.
