Hume City

Residents place of work

34,801 or 49.1% of Hume City’s resident workers travel outside of the area to work.

Journey to Work (residents) data shows where Hume City'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.
