Abstract

Which jobs are more likely to be affected by mobility restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic? This paper uses American Time Use Survey data to measure the share of the work hours that are spent at home for different job categories. We compute and provide home-working shares by occupation (US census classification, SOC and international ISCO classification), and by industry (US census classification, NAICS and international ISIC classification).

Keywords: home-working, remote work, time-use, COVID-19

JEL Classification: J22
