Supplementary notes

Data for 2015-2020 is defined by the source as: '"people who work mainly at or from home in the UK, in the following categories 'own home', same grounds or building', and 'home as base'. Responders were asked to consider where they would mainly work in their main job prior to the Covid-19 pandemic."

Data for 1998-2014 is taken from a previous report from the ONS called 'Characteristics of Home Workers' released in 2014, with home workers defined as "those who usually spend at least half of their work time using their home."
