Journey-to-Work

The following tables are summaries of journey to work data for Oxford County at the census subdivision (CSD) level of geography.

The journey to work data was collected as part of the mandatory long form survey in 2006, and the voluntary National Household Survey (NHS) in 2011. Among other information, these surveys collected information on commuting flows between the place of residence and the place of work. These data are collected for persons aged 15 years and over in occupied private dwellings who worked at some time since Jan. 1, 2005 (for the 2006 Census) or since Jan. 1, 2010 (for the 2011 Census).

These tables represent a summary of the raw data supplied to the County and reflects the County’s interpretation of the raw data.  Users should be careful when comparing these summary tables as there were differences in how the data were collected.
