One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.76% of the workforce.

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.
