Liverpool City

Workers' place of residence

Of the 63,409 people who work in Liverpool City, 21,121 or 33.3% also live in the area.

Where does Liverpool City'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 Liverpool City provides local employment.

Derived from the Census:

'For the main job held last week, what was the person's workplace address?'

Persons who are employed within the area boundaries.

Please note: The ABS have discovered a minor error in the coding of Journey to Work in the 2016 Census. A revision to this dataset is expected to be released in early December and will be updated on this page soon afterwards. In the meantime, please use with caution and expect that the exact numbers may change slightly following the re-release. It is not expected to greatly change the magnitude of the numbers.
