On this episode of “Diving into Data,” TC Riley analyzes the numbers surrounding these two prevailing socio-economic topics today. The data is in and it isn’t so clear cut.

Remote work is popular among employees, with 74% saying working remotely would make them less likely to leave the company.

Meanwhile, self-taught day traders are at home making small investments using apps like Robinhood. Are these users inflating the market, or helping cushion the blow?
