This paper examines the influence of technology and employer
attitude on the decision to work at home. Using data from a suburban Washington
household travel survey, it is found that both technology and a favorable
employer attitude are positively associated with the number of hours and
days in a two week period during which a respondent works at home. Other
factors, including demographics, socio-economics, commuting time, and
employer type were not statistically significant. Log-linear and translog
forms were better fits than a simpler linear form.
