Origin and Destination data

Origin-destination tables comprise the travel-to-work and migration patterns of individuals, cross-tabulated by variables of interest (for example occupation). New products for the 2011 Census provide the migration patterns of those living at a student address one year ago and provide information on individuals with second residences.

These tables follow on from the origin and destination products released as part of the 2001 census.

The 2011 Census origin-destination tables are classified in three ways:

  • Public tables available under Open Government License via the ONS website,

  • Tables with slightly more detail not available to the public are termed safeguarded and can only be accessed by data analysts under terms and conditions,

  • Tables with greater detail are termed secure and are only accessible in the ONS Virtual Microdata Laboratory.
