Hoping to work from home? One way to do that is with a remote job, which lets you work away from the office.

You might think it doesn’t matter where you live if you work remotely. But that’s often not the case.

About 95% of remote job listings on FlexJobs.com include a location where the worker needs to be based, according to the job search website that specializes in remote and other flexible jobs. The reasons for that may include taxes, licensing, legal, training or face-to-face meetings.

A recent analysis by FlexJobs reveals which states have the greatest number of location-specific remote job postings.

Read on to see the ranking. We also show the percentage of a state’s working population employed in remote jobs, which FlexJobs pulled from U.S. Census data, and common industries for remote employment in the state.
