Delaware was named #1 in ‘Best States for Working from Home’ in an article by WalletHub this past week. Due to the pandemic, many businesses have had to pivot and move their employees to working from home. 

Before the pandemic, 20% of employed Americans who had jobs that could be done from home were physically working from home part or full time, according to an article from Pew Research Center. That number has tripled to 71% since March of 2020 with 54% agreeing they would want to continue working from home after quarantine is over.

Much of the feasibility of working from home is dictated by LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

WalletHub ranked all 50 states and the District of Columbia across 2 work categories with 12 total subcategories to report that Delaware is the #1 Best States for Working from Home. The rubric was as follows:

Work Environment

  • Share of Workers Working from Home (pre-COVID-19)
  • Share of Potential Telecommuters
  • Households’ Internet Access
  • Cybersecurity

Living Environment

  • Average Retail Price of Electricity
  • Access to Low-priced Internet Plan
  • Internet Cost: Full Weight
  • Median Square Footage per Average Number of Persons in a Household
  • Share of Detached Housing Units
  • Average Home Square Footage
  • Share of for Sale Homes with Lot Greater than 1,000 Square Feet
  • Share of for Sale Homes with Swimming Pool
