Findings from a survey of 3,800 adults working from home:

68% of respondents say working from home every day has already put a strain on their relationship with their partner.

8 days is the longest the average person admits they could be in self-isolation with their partner before things become tense.

63% of Brits say they do not have enough room to work comfortably from home if they live with their partner.

Over half (61%) of respondents say working from home increases their productivity.

The survey asked respondents which person in their relationship has taken the most steps to prepare for self-isolation: 72% of women said it was them, compared to 52% of men.

1 in 10 people surveyed who are working from home now say they do not shower or bathe every day (16% of men compared to 6% of women).

15% of respondents say they do not get dressed out of their sleeping attire each day. 

Google Surveys offers two panels of respondents: (1) internet users reading content on a network of web publisher sites using Google Opinion Rewards for Publishers, and (2) smartphone users who have downloaded and signed up to use an app called Google Opinion Rewards. The publisher network uses inferred demographics, while the mobile app asks users to self-report their age, gender and zip code.
Google Surveys uses a two-step process to ensure each survey’s representativeness. First, they use stratified sampling to dynamically target respondents with the goal of matching the demographics of the target internet population. Next, they apply post-stratification weighting to more closely match those same demographics of the target internet population.
