A relatively large number of people in Henderson telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.03% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle

As is often the case in a small city, Henderson doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
