Home or Office:Technology, Attitude, and At-Home Work
This paper examines the influence of technology and employer attitude on the decision to work at home. Using data from a suburban Washington household travel survey, it is found that both technology and a favorable employer attitude are positively associated with the number of hours and days in a two week period during which a respondent works at home. Other factors, including demographics, socio-economics, commuting time, and employer type were not statistically significant. Log-linear and translog forms were better fits than a simpler linear form.
