Coders work from home more often than those in other jobs

In 2015, an estimated 300,000 full-time employees in computer science jobs worked from home in the US. (This figure also includes related professions such as actuaries and statisticians, but the vast majority are programmers.) Although not the largest group of remote employees in absolute numbers, that’s about 8% of all programmers, which is a significantly larger share than in any other job category, and well above the average for all jobs of just under 3%.

8% is not really that much, but the proportion versus other jobs is large, “more than double.” Of course, doubling, even tripling, small numbers doesn’t really get you that far.
