Workers' place of residence
In 2011, of the 126,023 people who worked in the EMRC area, 66,543 or 52.8% also lived in the area.
Where does the EMRC area's workforce come from? Journey to Work data sheds light on how many workers live locally, how many commute from other areas and which areas they commute from. Some areas attract a large external workforce because they have major employment centres or because local residents have a different set of skills or aspirations than the local jobs require. Understanding where workers reside assists in planning and advocacy for roads and public transport provision. It also helps to clarify economic and employment drivers across areas and assists in understanding the degree to which the EMRC area provides local employment.
