This section contains information on commuting for work or study reasons based on the comparison between the place of residence of the working or student populations and their place of employment or study. The information is disaggregated by municipality, county, region in the Territorial Plan and province.
In the case of the population censuses of 1991, 1996 and 2001, the information for municipalities is further disaggregated by sex and mean of transport. As for commuting done for work reasons, the employed persons are disaggregated by profession, activity sector and employment status for all municipalities.
In the 2011 Population Census, as it was based upon survey data, it provides information on commuting in two different sections.
Firstly, similar to the previous censuses, commuting is disaggregated by sex and mean of transport according to province and region of the Territorial Plan. As for municipality and county data, it only provides information on those over 80,000 inhabitants.
Secondly, it provides territorial information for the commuting of the total number of employed persons and students in all counties and municipalities over 10,000 inhabitants.
Due to the sample data characteristic of the 2011 Population Census, boxes having less than 10 sample units contain the symbol "··". What is more, the results of the 2011 Population Census have been rounded and are shown without decimal places. Hence, some totals may not coincide with the sum of their disaggregation.
In the 2011 Population Census, the commuting for purposes of work and study was analysed for municipalities greater than 200,000 inhabitants. To do so, the post codes of the place of residence of the working population and their workplaces were analysed, and also the post codes of the students place of residence and place of study. This information has been published in csv format.
