Data which examines commuting patterns for those in employment and is based solely on a person’s main job for 2021.

The data shows commuting flows from areas in Wales to other areas (both in and out of Wales).


Responses for work location relate to the respondent’s usual working pattern if coronavirus restrictions were not in place. Therefore, data for 2020 do not reflect actual commuting patterns observed during the pandemic.


From January to September 2021, responders were asked to consider where they would usually work prior to the Covid-19 pandemic; from October to December 2021 the guidance changed to ask about their ‘usual’ pattern. Respondents who were furloughed are included and answered based on their workplace location if they were working.
