Workers place of residence
Of the 39,569 people who work in Wyong Shire, 29,170 or 73.7% also live in the area.
Journey to Work (workers) data shows where Wyong 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 Wyong Shire.
