Means of travel to place of work (2001 specifications)

This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify the workday population aged 16 to 74 in England and Wales by method of travel to work. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

The information in datasets that use the 2001 specifications of 'Travel to Work' is produced using both a person's place of work and their method of travel to work and is comparable with 2001.

For example, a person who has indicated their place of work as their home address and said that they travel to work by driving a car or van (e.g. visiting clients) appears in the category 'Works mainly at or from home', as was the case in 2001.
