Sources:

  1. These data were obtained from table "QS203EW - Method of Travel to Work" for Local Authorities from the 2011 Census of Population. The data was downloaded on 22nd October 2015 in spreadsheet format from the Census part of the Topics section on the Neighbourhood Statistics website operated by the Office for National Statistics. The data are under Crown Copyright, but are made available for use under an Open Government Licence.


Notes:

  1. The data contained a caveat about accuracy due to data protection. This may affect results from the check sums: "In order to protect against disclosure of personal information from the 2011 Census, there has been swapping of records in the Census database between different geographic areas, and so some counts will be affected. In the main, the greatest effects will be at the lowest geographies, since the record swapping is targeted towards those households with unusual characteristics in small areas. More details on the ONS Census disclosure control strategy may be found at Census Results / Statistical Disclosure Control."
  2. This table holds data for all Local Authorities in England and Wales.


Checking:

  1. The statistical data have not been checked.
  2. The geographical units have been cross-checked against the GBHGIS administrative unit gazetteer to ensure that all units are correctly identified. The unit names and types have been standardised. Each unit has a unique unit ID assigned to it and this can be used to cross-reference against other data-sets.
