City of Monash

Residents place of work by industry - All industries

47,972 or 61.3% of the City of Monash’s employed residents who work travel outside of the area to work.

Journey to Work (residents) data shows where the City of Monash's residents go to work and whether they need to travel significant distances to work. This impacts upon planning and advocacy for roads and public transport provision, as well as economic development strategies to develop local employment which fits the skills and qualifications of the residents.

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 (people will travel further for higher paid jobs), house prices in the local area; and the geographic size of the local area (in large areas, local jobs may not in fact be so local, while in more compact areas, workers may walk to work in a neighbouring LGA.).

Please note that where an industry has a very small number of employed residents, there may be no information displayed on the map or the detailed table due to insufficient residents travelling to any one area to display. The summary table will still include the information for the total residents working locally or travelling outside the area to work.

Residents place of work data should be viewed alongside Self-Containment and Employment Capacity datasets, as well as modelled Employed residents estimates, which are updated annually. The Resident Labour Force section will provide the characteristics of the locally available labour force.
