NSROC Region

Residents place of work by occupation - All occupations

144,709 or 48.4% of the NSROC Region’s resident workers travel outside of the area to work.

Journey to Work (residents) data shows where the NSROC Region's resident workers 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 resident workers.

The distance travelled by residents in different broad occupations 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.

Residents place of work data should be viewed alongside Self-containment and Jobs to workers ratioy datasets, as well as modelled Employed residents estimates, which are updated annually. The Resident workers section will provide the characteristics of resident workers.
