The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute present the webinar entitled “Spatial Shifts in Daytime Population Due to COVID - Impacts and Increasing Levels of Remote Work.”
Geospatial distribution of workers has far reaching implications for commuting data, consumer spending behaviors at restaurants, retail, and services, and commercial real estate. The pandemic has forced employers to rethink the ability to work from distance and shift large segments of the workforce to remote work.
This analysis pairs Bureau of Labor Statistics data by ability to work remotely by industry coupled with Longitudinal Employment Household Dynamics commuting data. Early results indicate a shift in daytime population away from traditional job centers in the urban core and into suburban and rural areas as a result of increased remote work.
