The Dutch Work From Home More Than Any Europeans

Eurostat have released some interesting new data showing the share of Europeans who regularly do home office.

In 2018, 5.2 percent of people aged between 15 and 64 regularly worked from home across the EU, and as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, that share has remained relatively constant at about five percent over the past 10 years.

The Netherlands has the highest share of workers who say they usually work from home at 14 percent, closely followed by Finland with 13.3 percent.

Home office rates are far lower in parts of Eastern Europe and it's practically unknown in Romania and Bulgaria where the rates are just 0.3 percent and 0.4 percent respectively. This infographic shows the situation across the continent and it also includes rates in EEA countries - Iceland, Switzerland and Norway. Eurostat states that older people tend to work from home more often than younger people.

In 2018, 1.8 percent of 15-24 year-olds worked from home in EU countries compared to 5 percent of 25-49 year-olds and 6.4 percent of 50-64 year-olds.
