Workday population in England and Wales, 2011

This infographic shows that the largest workday population gains were in London and that the characteristics of the workday population can be very different to the usually resident population.


The workday population includes:

  • People who are usually resident in England and Wales and in employment (aged 16 and over) with a fixed place of work (part-time or full-time) in England and Wales; when there is no fixed place of work, or work is mostly done from home, then the home address of the person is used for the workday population. The workday population will include shift and night workers such as hospital staff and security guards.

  • Those not working (including those under 16) are counted at their usual residence.
