Labor Force Statistics from the Current Population Survey

New data measuring telework

BLS added questions to the Current Population Survey (CPS) starting in October 2022 that focus on telework or work at home for pay. These questions ask whether people had teleworked or worked at home for pay in the survey reference week, the number of hours teleworked, and whether they had teleworked in February 2020, before COVID-19 pandemic started.

New monthly estimates of people who telework are available back to October 2022.
