SSROC region

Workers place of residence

Of the 978,401 local workers in the SSROC region, 627,691 or 64.2% also live in the area.

Journey to Work (workers) data shows where the SSROC region'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 the SSROC region.
