Among the key findings, SmartAsset learned there was a strong showing for North Carolina, as three cities in the Tar Heel State — Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte — ranked in the top 10.
Mid-sized cities also performed well.
Aside from Charlotte, North Carolina and Austin, Texas the cities in the top 10 had a population size ranging from 240,000 to 500,000. It’s likely that those towns offer more space in homes and apartments, making them better suited for working from home.
While Atlanta did not make it into the top 10, it managed to come in at No. 13, tying with Seattle. Under 10% of workers worked from home in Atlanta in 2019 but 36.36% of workers can do so now, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau.
If you’re one of the workers who will continue to keep your home and office in the same place this year, you may want to consider some changes to keep distractions at bay.
