Armidale Regional Council
Workers place of residence by occupation - All occupations
Of the 11,614 people who work in the Armidale Regional Council, 9,895 or 85.2% also live in the area.
Journey to Work (workers) data shows where the Armidale Regional Council's workforce comes from and how far they are travelling to access employment in the area.
This shows the degree to which the local economy draws on the wider region to supply labour for its industries. It is also useful in planning and advocacy for roads and public transport provision.
The distance and direction travelled by workers in different broad occupations is generally influenced by a few factors. These primarily include the type and skill level of jobs located within the local area, and the residential location where those skills are available in the population. The pay level of particular occupations is also a factor, as people will travel further for a high-paying job.
Understanding how far people travel to access particular occupation categories in the area can help in developing programs for equity in the jobs market, and having affordable housing available for workers of all skill levels.
Workers place of residence data should be viewed alongside Self-Sufficiency and Employment Capacity datasets for a summary of local employment opportunity by industry, as well as modelled Employment (Total) numbers and Employment Locations to understand the relative size of each industry sector and its distribution across the the Armidale Regional Council. To analyse the characteristics of the workforce in each industry, go to the Workers profile section.
