More than three million people are now working from home, almost tripling the number the same time from last year, data from the INE has revealed.

The report from the National Statistics Agency shows the number of home workers has risen from 915,000 in 2019 to 3.01 million this year, mainly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Those aged 25 to 45 were the highest number working from home, closely followed by those aged over 45.

In total 16.2% of the national workforce are now working from home, compared to 4.8% last year.
