In summary terms, the report examines teleworking, and homeworking more generally, from several perspectives:

(i) the impact of differing definitions of both homeworking and teleworking on measurement of their incidence;
(ii) identification of types of home-worker by their characteristics;
(iii) the potential productivity effects of home-working as determined by individual income from work;
(iv) estimation of the effect of education and PC skills on the likelihood of various kinds of home-working;
(v) analysis of differences in quality of work between different kinds of home-worker.

The aim is to test the extent to which forms of home-working (including telework) have distinctive effects and causes over and above the personal characteristics and the family requirements of those who engage in them.
