Most home workers are managers and professionals
March 05, 2002
Of those who reported working at home at least once per week in 2001, almost two-thirds were managers and professionals.
Sixty-four percent of home workers were managers and professionals. The next most common occupation was technical, sales, and administrative support, at 24 percent.
Among wage and salary workers who do some work at home, most are "just taking work home" rather than being expressly paid to work at home. Schoolteachers (excluding college) especially were likely to do unpaid work at home, with 2.7 million—or almost half of all teachers—reporting such activity in 2001.
