    How did they count farmers? Is a farmer who works his own land “working from home”? That would mean agrarian countries would automatically score high on the index compared to urban countries. Likewise, poorer countries are more likely to have a larger number of home industries, from creating farm products (milk, cheese, yarn, etc.,) sewing work, weaving, repair shops, etc., than more industrialized countries will. This would again skew the results in favor of lesser-developed countries.

    What we think of as telecommuting is not necessarily the same thing as “working from home.”
