In 2011, of the 35,470 people who worked in Redland City, 27,241 or 76.8% also lived in the area.

Where does Redland 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 Redland City provides local employment.

Derived from the Census:
