The Zoomburbs of America

FRIDAY, MAY 08, 2020

Call them Zoomburbs: The places with the highest percentage of workers most likely to be able to telecommute – those in management, business, and financial occupations – are located in the nation’s capital and its suburbs, according to a Social Explorer analysis of American Community Survey data.

The white-collar workers involved in business, finance and management make up almost one-third of the workforce in Arlington County, Va., the highest percentage in the nation. Loudoun County, Va., ranks No. 3 (27 percent), with the District of Columbia a close fourth (26.8 percent).  New York, the nation’s financial capital, had the second-highest percentage of people engaged in management, financial, or business occupations (27.3 percent).
