Hornsby Shire

Workers place of residence

Of the 39,813 people who work in the Hornsby Shire, 16,803 or 42.2% also live in the area.

Journey to Work (workers) data shows where Hornsby Shire's local workers come 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, as well as in planning and advocacy for roads and public transport provision.

The distance travelled by workers in different industry sectors may be influenced by the nature of employment opportunities (e.g. more specialist occupations may draw people from further afield); the number of jobs available in the industry sector; transport options available and commuting times to Hornsby Shire.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2016 – by journey to 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.
