Where remote work is up, down

The rate of remote workers varies widely among states, according to a LendingTree analysis published Nov. 28.

For the analysis, LendingTree researchers examined U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey data. LendingTree, an online lending marketplace, specifically examined the time periods of Sept. 29 to Oct. 11, 2021, and Oct. 5 to Oct. 17, 2022. Each state was ranked based on its rate of workers who worked from home in the last seven days (October 2022 compared to October 2021).
