The No. 1 city to find a remote job, according to new research—it isn’t New York or San Francisco

Excerpt from cnbc.com

new paper from the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) identifies the cities where remote jobs are growing the fastest, focusing on five English-speaking countries: the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Canada and New Zealand. 

The researchers behind the paper — called “Remote Work across Jobs, Companies and Space”— looked at more than 250 million job vacancies offering remote or hybrid work posted between January 2014 and January 2023. 

They found that the U.K. is outpacing the U.S., Australia, Canada and New Zealand when it comes to remote, flexible jobs, which is “unsurprising,” the researchers note, “as the U.K. is on the whole more skewed towards white-collar jobs with a higher propensity to be worked from home.” 

 

 

Here are the 10 cities where the share of remote jobs has increased the most: 

  1. Washington, D.C. (U.S.)
  2. San Francisco (U.S.)
  3. London (U.K.)
  4. Glasgow (U.K.)
  5. Chicago (U.S.)
  6. Atlanta (U.S.)
  7. Phoenix (U.S.)
  8. New York (U.S.)
  9. Sydney (Australia)
  10. Toronto (Canada)
