Hornsby Shire

Residents place of work

51,301 or 72.5% of the Hornsby Shire’s resident workers travel outside of the area to work.

Journey to Work (residents) data shows where Hornsby Shire's resident workers go to work and whether they need to travel significant distances to work, or can live near work. This impacts upon planning and advocacy for roads and public transport provision, as well as economic development strategies to improve access to local employment.

The distance travelled by residents in different industry sectors may be influenced by; the nature of employment opportunities versus the skills and qualifications of local residents; transport options available and commuting times; relationship between wages and salaries and house prices in the local area; and the geographic size of the local area.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2016 – by place of work

Please note: The ABS have discovered a minor error in the coding of Journey to Work in the 2016 Census. A revision to this dataset is expected to be released in early December and will be updated on this page soon afterwards. In the meantime, please use with caution and expect that the exact numbers may change slightly following the re-release. It is not expected to greatly change the magnitude of the numbers.
