When the pandemic began many Americans had to start working from home, something that only a small percentage of people in the workforce had had the luxury of doing up until that point. Many thought this change would only be for a couple weeks until the number of new COVID cases began to slow, now two years later from the onset of the pandemic there are still many people continuing to work from home. This visual from FinancialForce maps out which areas of the U.S. had the biggest increases in people that began working from home in 2020, broken down into two separate lists for a more fair comparison of similar sized statistical areas. The metropolitan and micropolitan areas that were found to have the biggest increases and the highest rates of people that worked from home were most commonly found in the coastal states, as well as within and around the state of Colorado. Are there any cities you were surprised to see had such a high rate of WFH during the start of the pandemic?
