District Data Service - Chart of the Month

Listed below are the data notes and charts that have been published as part of the Oxfordshire District Data Analysis Service.  You can find other data by district via the district tabs above.

Latest chart of the month - first briefing on 2011 Census travel to work data

Produced by Oxfordshire County Council’s Research & Intelligence team in partnership with Oxford City Council and the District Data Service, this first travel to work briefing sets out the headlines by district: where outbound commuters travel to, where inbound commuters travel from, and how patterns have changed since 2001. It shows that countywide:

  • 17% of Oxfordshire’s workforce (57,000 people) commute into the county.  The greatest number of commutes into Oxfordshire begin in Aylesbury Vale, South Northamptonshire and London, and the majority end in Oxford. 
  • Almost 50,000 employed residents (14%) living in Oxfordshire travel out of the county to work.  Top destinations include London, Aylesbury Vale, Reading, Wycombe, West Berkshire, South Northamptonshire and Swindon. 


Further briefings will be published in the coming weeks and will focus on how people make these journeys and changes in commuting patterns to and from major settlements and key areas of employment.  In the meantime, you can view the 2011 commuting patterns to and from areas across the UK by district, town and ward using the interactive tools on Oxfordshire Insight.  Visit, http://insight.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/travel

The travel to work data set is vast, and these briefings only present the headline figures.  We would welcome your comments and suggestions for further analysis.
