This is an interactive guide and tool for exploring some of the origin-destination data published for Census 2021.
Origin-destination data show the movement of people from one location to another, such as migration and commuting patterns. It is sometimes known as "flow data".
Using the tool
Choose between visualised flows for:
- Migration flows - Movement from address 12 months prior to census day
- Workplace flows - Usual residence and place of work
You can also switch direction to see aggregated movements to and from an area.
The tool is also embeddable for use in external websites. A link is provided within the guide article.
