Destination zones are zones defined by State transport authorities and related bodies for Journey to Work studies. They refer to the destination of a Journey to Work, i.e. where people actually work. They do not necessarily correspond to Collection Districts (CDs) but do aggregate to Statistical Local Areas (SLAs).
Destination zone coding makes it possible to produce census characteristics of the people who work in an area; also, in conjunction with origin zone to provide information on Journey to Work.
See also Industry (INDP), Journey to Work, Method of Travel to Work (TPTP), Origin Zone, Working Population.
The Census can provide counts of people who work in destination zones within Journey to Work (JTW) study areas, or aggregations of these areas. These counts are known as the working population and contain employed people who are enumerated in a Journey to Work study area; and who report a workplace address for the main job held last week which is within the same study area as the one in which they are enumerated.
It is not possible to distinguish between workers working standard hours, and shift workers: the data collected relate to all workers.
Tabulations of working populations present a profile of employed people in an area in the working week prior to census night.
See also Journey to Work, Work Destination Zone (DZNP).
