Bankstown City

Workers place of residence by industry - All industries

Of the 55,304 people who work in Bankstown City, 17,963 or 32.5% also live in the area.

Journey to Work (workers) data shows where Bankstown City'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 industry sectors may be influenced by the nature of employment opportunities (higher paid, high value employment may draw people from a wider area); the skill level required (jobs requiring tertiary qualifications will draw more workers from areas with high qualification levels among the residents) the number of jobs available in the industry sector (sectors with more opportunities may have a wider catchment); transport options available and commuting times to Bankstown City.

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 Bankstown City. To analyse the characteristics of the workforce in each industry, go to the Workers profile section.
