This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify usual residents in England and Wales aged 16 and over and in employment in the area the week before the census by relationship between usual residence and place of work and by method of travel to work. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.
Information on travel to work informs both national and local transport services and policies. It provides a basis for transport planning , for example, whether new bus routes or changes to existing bus routes are needed.
Statistical Disclosure Control
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 on the Statistical Disclosure Control page on the ONS web site.
