The highest percentage of people in employment working at home was in Sparse Rural Less Favoured Areas, 14.9%. Most of these are in agriculture and hotels where many live on the job. With other office-based industries, such as banking and public administration the rate of home working was lower in LFAs than elsewhere possibly due to poor broadband. The lowest proportion of homeworkers was in Urban Less Favoured Areas, 2.8%. Home workers as a percentage of people in employment in England overall has remained consistent between 2005 and 2010, at between 3.3% and 3.8%
