Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

Census flow data involve flows of individuals in the UK between origins and destinations. These flows are either the residential migrations of individuals from one place of usual residence to another, or of commuters making journeys from home to workplace.

These data are derived from the questions on the census form relating to usual place of residence one year ago, and the place of work for the respondent's main job.
Main Topics:
