The Census 2016 Summary Results – Part 2 have been released by the CSO. This report is the second of two publications, and deals primarily with social, employment, and health related findings.
The 2016 Census data has revealed that there has been a large increase in those actively commuting to work, school, and college, such as by walking and cycling. For the working population, cycling to work has shown the largest percentage increase of all means of transport, increasing by almost 43% since 2011. Walking and cycling has remained as the primary method of commuting for college students. Although the car still stands as the predominant means of travel for primary and secondary school students, there has been an overall increase in those actively travelling to school, with approximately 35% of primary and secondary school students walking or cycling to school as their primary means of travel.
