NEW! 2016 Worker profiles on

NEW! 2016 Worker profiles on

Andrew Hedge 05 Mar, 2018

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes, and now we’re excited to let you know that the Worker profiles on have now been updated with 2016 Census data. These profiles are a great source of information on the people that work in your local area. Their age structure, occupations, qualifications and mode of transport to work are all covered.

Also, a friendly reminder that currently only 2016 data are available for work destination. 2011 data are not comparable due to a change in methodology in 2016 which “imputed” a work destination to those workers who didn’t state their work destination. This means comparisons with earlier years should not be made. .id are currently sourcing data collected under the same methodology in 2011 which will be added to this page at a later date. For a detailed case study of this issue please visit our blog post.
