National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA)

Workers' place of residence

In 2011, of the 796,548 people who worked in the National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA), 527,029 or 66.2% also lived in the area.

Where does the National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA)'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 National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA) 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.
