This is the page to create an account for access to the anonymized data from the Survey of Working Arrangements and Attitudes.

With an account, you’ll obtain access to the anonymized data, documentation, and code that reproduces key results from our working paper on “Why Working From Home Will Stick” (Barrero, Bloom, and Davis, 2021).

Please read the following very carefully, and fill out the required details.


We hire commercial survey providers to collect the Survey of Working Arrangements and Attitudes (SWAA) on our behalf.

We do not collect personally identifiable information, do not contact respondents directly, and have no way to re-contact them. 

Researchers who use our data agree not to attempt to identify any individuals in the survey.

When using our data please cite:

Barrero, Jose Maria, Nicholas Bloom, and Steven J. Davis, 2021. “Why working from home will stick,” National Bureau of Economic Research Working Paper 28731.
