Who’s Really Working Online? ~Quick Stats~
When it comes to working from home, it’s good to be a statistic.
The last 10 years have shown us great increases in people that are changing their lives by not going to the office 5 days a week. In the US alone over 250,000 people have joined the trend and taken advantage of being able to work from home, co-working spaces, or while traveling and trying out life as an expat. Applying any number of these scenarios, that number continues to grow with each year that passes by.
Geographically, and focusing on countries with the largest and mainly English-speaking populations, here are some present-day figures to behold:
>55 million Americans work remotely or from home, part-time or full-time
>5 million workers in in the UK are doing the same
>3 million Australian professionals are also on board
When it comes to gender:
- Men are still leading and make up over 50% of the remote work force
- But 35% more women have become remote workers since 2005, demonstrating that we ladies are definitely strong in the work-from-wherever movement
