  • About this Release


The objective of this paper is to provide an evaluation of Journey to Work (JTW) data collected in the 1996 Census.

This paper contains information about the procedures used to code destination zones (DZNs), the strategies to deal with imprecise workplace address responses, differences between states in processing methodology and the methods of validating JTW data. Further analyses examine the design of questions relating to JTW, the incidence of respondents reporting the address of their employer's head office rather than their actual place of work, the time inconsistencies between JTW questions and the special case of respondents with no fixed workplace address. The paper also discusses changes to form design and processing for the 2001 Census.
