The post-COVID work from home-hybrid work model continues to be more a part of American work life. According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), the share of U.S. jobs worked on-site dropped roughly 10 percentage points from 84% in 2019 to 74% in 2021, the first full year of the pandemic.

The share of jobs done exclusively from home (fully home-based jobs) roughly doubled from 11% of all jobs in 2019 to 23% in 2020, before declining to about 21% in 2021.
