Share of workers by telework status during COVID-19 U.S. 2020, by age

Due to the coronavirus outbreak in 2020, many Americans have been forced to work from home. In some cases they work from home despite being in an industry that was said to be unsuitable for telework before the global pandemic. As of April 2020, 2.5 percent of workers aged 55 years and older were working from home despite being considered as unable to telework. On the other hand, no workers aged 15 to 24 years fell into the same category.
