Flow Data Information System

1991 Census: Special Workplace Statistics (Set C) (incorporating 'home workers' in intra-ward flows)

This data set is dervied from the 1991 SWS Set C, information about which is given below.

This version has the following differences


The 1991 SWS derive from two questions in the 1991 Census about place of usual residence and place of work. There are three sets of tables (SWS Sets A, B and C). Set A and Set B provide data on the employed and self-employed population by residential and workplace respectively. SWS Set C is the data set that involves interaction flow data that are accessible through WICID.

SWS Set C are the journey-to-work flows within and between wards (in England and Wales) and postcode sectors (in Scotland). wards (in England and Wales) and postcode sectors (in Scotland). The entire data set is extremely large because there are 9,930 wards and 1,003 postal sectors but the majority of the cells (interaction flows) in the entire origin-destination matrix are zeros.

Users can choose from 274 counts organised into 9 tables to extract commuting data on economic position and age of employees and self employed, hours worked, family position, distance commuted, mode of transport, cars available to household, occupation, social class and socio-economic group, and industry division.

All the data were obtained from a 10% sample and therefore problems of adjustment to preserve confidentiality are not encountered. Users will need to multiply raw data by 10 if wanting to determine actual commuting levels. Users should also be aware that the commuting data on intra-ward flows can be selected that distinguishes those people who work at home from those who commute to work within the same ward.
