Revised date

December 6, 2017


A discrepancy was detected in the Commuting destination data released on November 29, 2017.

For some records of employed persons who were absent from work during the Census week, the relationship between residence and place of work (Commuting Destination variable) was calculated incorrectly. The problem affects all geographic levels in the data table. This issue does not have an impact on the published analysis or any of the other Journey to Work data tables.


The data have been corrected and reloaded for the data table. New download files have also been generated and loaded.
