Based upon data collected from approximately 7,000 people via the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS), the report focusses on the effect of the Coronavirus lockdown in the UK on both the extent and intensity of homeworking, its relationship with mental well-being and how these effects have varied between ‘new’ and ‘established’ homeworkers.
