This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates of the usual residents of the UK aged 16 and over in employment the week before the census. The data classifies people currently resident in each local authority or higher area of the UK by method of travel to work and shows the movement between their local authority of residence and workplace. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.
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.
