Commuter: Description

A commuter is a person who works in at least one other municipality, which means that this person has to travel a long way to work. The commuting rate gives an indication of the proportion of commuters in a geographical unit. In this respect, the commuting rate is very useful to evaluate the local labour market situation or whether the geographical unit is primarily a residential area around a commercial or industrial estate, for example. The commuter rate is also revealing with regard to traffic in the region, as higher traffic volumes can generally be expected in these regions. Particularly high commuter rates are usually found in the vicinity of conurbations. The same also applies to rural areas in general, where the workplace is often located only a few kilometres away in the neighbouring community. A typical example of a region with a particularly high commuter rate in Austria is Northern Burgenland, where a particularly large number of people commute to Vienna on the one hand and to Lower Austria on the other.

Similio offers numerous Commuter comparisons with interactive maps. There is a separate map for each Austrian municipality. Further maps for Commuter are available at the level of political districts, landscapes, regions and at the level of federal provinces.
