Submission + - Dueling facts: Is telecommuting growing or not? (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "Anecdotally you know telecommuting is growing but many days when you get out on the road, it looks like that notion is bunk. And some of it just might be if you give a new study out today from the US Census Bureau much weight: despite rising fuel costs, 77% of commuters continue to drive their cars — alone — most of the time. The kicker is that the survey looks at 2005 figures -the latest it has — from U.S. Census Bureau American Community Service analysis. As for telecommuting, the bureau says approximately 4% us worked from home in 2005. Compare that to a A CDW Government study released in Marc said during the past year, telework growth in the federal government also outpaced the private sector: 35% of Federal teleworkers started teleworking, compared to 10% of private-sector teleworkers. http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=node/1620 6"
