Flow Data Information System

2001 Census: Special Travel Statistics (Level 2)

Contains travel flows from (and within) residential wards in Scotland to workplace wards in the UK. The set of wards used are as follows:

ST and CAS wards are identical for the most part; however in a few cases small CAS wards have been merged with larger neighbours in order to satisfy output thresholds. No such merging was necessary for Northern Ireland, so there is no distinction between ST and CAS wards there.

The mixture of wards is unique to the 2001 interaction data, and the set have therefore been referred to as interaction data wards.

An alternative version of this dataset, showing flows between and within postal sectors (within Scotland only) is also available.

For residences outside Scotland, the 2001 Special Workplace Statistics (SWS) should be used. The STS and SWS are similar in some ways but have some crucial differences:

Data available

Users can choose from 535 counts in 6 tables. This set of 535 counts includes a number of totals and sub-totals; the number of interior cells which form the basis of these sub-totals is 280.

All the 2001 STS data have been derived from the 100% sample and include imputed households. Where workplace locations were unknown, these were also imputed.

Disclosure control

The data in this set were not subject to any post-tabulation disclosure control methods such as the Small Cell Adjustment Methodology used elsewhere in 2001 Census outputs.
