Remote work is now on an exponential trajectory and growing fast. With its growth, millions of people who are now newly working remotely from home, a cafe, or coworking space, will realize they've become location independent and travel or move to new places. In this report, we try to figure out who these people are, what work do they do, and how they spend their life based on data from tens of thousands of Nomad List members.

This page is build LIVE with data pulled straight from the database every hour, so it's always up-to-date. Conclusions you can derive from this are always limited and merely indicative but possibly interesting. Nomad List is a paid membership community, which means there's a selection bias as people who do not or cannot pay are not in the dataset. On the other hand, free digital nomad communities, like on Facebook, require no commitment to join, therefore it's not clear if these people are merely aspirational or active nomads or not. On Nomad List we can confirm they are active based on their travel logs.

The title of this report is inspired by Buffer's amazing annual remote work report (and used with permission).

You can freely use this page's data, please link back and mention us. If you like this, also see the live network graph of all travels on Nomad List and the fastest growing remote work hubs of 2021.

What are the traits of attractive nomads?

Attractiveness is based on the proportion of people liking or disliking a person based on their photo on Nomad List's dating app. That does NOT mean people like or dislike specific traits. It's that people who are rated as attractive are more likely to have selected these traits on their profile. TL;DR hot people have specific traits, but those specific traits don't necessarily make you hot (you could always try though).
