Evansville, Indiana Named a Top 10 Place for Remote Workers

The Wall Street Journal Ranks Evansville, IN as the third best city for remote workers in the United States

The Wall Street Journal created the ranking of great places to work from home by first asking the survey firm Ipsos to conduct a nationwide poll in August 2022, identifying 10 top factors that people said they cared most about in a remote-work location. The Journal then weighted those factors to come up with our list of cities and towns that fit those priorities.

The list, of course, can’t take into account every reason remote workers move to a particular city. People may choose a city because that is where they grew up, or where their family is, or because they really do only want that beach or mountain view.

But the list does provide a window into places that often aren’t on the radar of remote workers, even though they offer many of the qualities that people say they are looking for, such as affordability, high-speed internet and more living space. And as more people have the opportunity to work remotely, the list—and the interactive tool we’ve created that allows people to plug in their own priorities—can be a handy resource in widening the potential places that remote workers can consider.
