Working from home has become more common since the coronavirus pandemic, but some places make it easier to work from home than others.
This week, WalletHub published a report that found the best U.S. states for working from home.
For its report, WalletHub compared all 50 states – and Washington, D.C. – based on 12 measurements in two categories: work environment and living environment.
