According to Telework Research Network, as of 2010, roughly 2.8 million employees (or just over 2% of the U.S. workforce) telecommute a majority of the time. This figure does not include self-employed workers or unpaid volunteers.

As of 2011, about 34 million people work from their residence occasionally, reports Forrester Research, a technology and market research company.

Forrester Research also predicts that the number of people who work remotely will nearly double -- to approximately 63 million people -- by the year 2016.
