Comments In Census 2001, information was not gathered on travel to work; however, statistics comparing place of residence and place of work is produced. In the statistics, legal residential address is used. By comparing the individual's place of residence with place of work, the scope of travel to work or commuting between regions can be established. The statistics are published at municipal level. For some persons, the location of the establishment may not be the same as the place of reporting for work. Commuting is not necessarily the same as daily travel to/from work. Some people might be weekly commuters, others might be part time employees and some are working wholly or partly at home. In-commuters to a municipality refer to persons who have their place of work in the municipality but are resident in another municipality. Out-commuters refer to persons living in the municipality but with their place of work in another municipality.
