AbstractThe aim of the Journey to Work Study was initially to supply a data base for the Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works for the 1964 Transportation Study. This data base was to be used for estimating the future need for new routes of transport or for upgrading existing routes. For this purpose, data was drawn from the 1961 Census. Subsequent journey-to-work information has been obtained from the 1966 Census, for both Victoria and New South Wales. The data files in this set consist of cross-tabulations. Variables included in the 1961 data are: origin-of-journey, destination-of-journey, occupation, and industry. Variables included in the 1966 data are: origin, destination, occupation, industry, and sex. The 1966 tables are available separately for New South Wales and Victoria. Data not available on Nesstar.
