Adopting Telework. The causal impact of working from home on subjective well-being in 2020

No 2201, CEPREMAP Working Papers (Docweb) from CEPREMAP

Abstract: Using the UK household longitudinal survey, we uncover a positive effect of work from home on life satisfaction, which is driven by partnered people and those without children at home. Concerning mental health, there is no average effect of telework, except for those living in rural areas, but this hides a dynamic evolution, as mental health initially deteriorates in the first months of telework, but improves after a period of adaptation, especially the feeling of being useful, of being a worthy person, and of being able to concentrate.
