Journey to Work

Identify where people work or reside in relation to a selected area as well as the mode used for the journey to work.

Journey to Work (JTW) data are derived from the 5-yearly Census of Population and Housing conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

It includes data on employment by industry and occupation, and method of travel to work at a fine geographical level known as the travel zone.

This information is a valuable resource for the analysis and forecasting of employment, commuting patterns and land use changes.

Note: Datasets have been moved to the Open Data Hub. Please access Journey to Work data from this new site.
