Atlanta, GA

Atlanta and Portland top the list of the fifteen large U.S. cities with the most remote workers, that’s according to a new study.

The number of Americans working from home has increased by more than 2 million since 2010, reaching 8.2 million in 2018. Today, one in twenty American workers clock most of their hours from home.
