Share of all employees who work from home in the UK 1998-2019

This statistic shows the share of those in employment who work from home in the United Kingdom from January to March 1998 to January to March 2014. Such working practices have received considerable media attention of late, in a seemingly ever increasing trend, more and more of those employed in the United Kingdom are working from home. It is worth noting, however, that a large proportion of these people are in the farming industry and therefore often have little choice but to work from home.
