Census estimates rely on answers to questions about the daily journey to work and are hence likely to include in the count many farmers who work in fields and buildings adjacent to their homes. Counts based on the LFS explicitly exclude the farming community. This difference is highly significant since almost half of those working at home according to the Census are in agriculture. Indeed, by removing them from the count, the LFS and Census estimates become broadly comparable. However, in other respects LFS estimates are more inclusive.

These variations can be explained in several ways. First, they are the result of differences in criteria for inclusion in the count, especially those based on numbers of hours worked at home per week. This cut-off point varies significantly within and between data sets. Higher estimates reflect lower thresholds (Horvath 1986; Silver 1989). A second source of variation concerns whether ‘working at home’ is taken to include work done at home, from home or in the same grounds and buildings as one’s home.
