Workplace Population (33 tables)

This series contains part one of new statistics about the characteristics of the workplace population of England and Wales.
The workplace population is an estimate of the population working in an area. It includes usual residents aged 16 to 74 whose usual place of work is in the area. This population is equivalent to the workplace population used in the 2001 Census. People who work mainly at or from home or do not have a fixed place of work are included in their area of their usual residence. The following population groups are excluded from the workplace population of an area:

  • Those living in England and Wales but working in Scotland, Northern Ireland, outside the UK or on offshore installations,
  • Those with a place of work in England and Wales but who are not usually resident in England and Wales, and
  • Short-term residents
