Walk to Work Day

Today is Australia's national Walk to Work Day. About 5% of Australia's workforce and students (18 years and over) usually walk or cycle to work or study. The two most important reasons why people usually walk or cycle are proximity of home to place of work or study (59%) and exercise and health (48%). For further information see Environmental Issues: People's Views and Practices (cat. no. 4602.0).

The upcoming second release of 2006 Census data will include statistics on Method of travel to work. Data on how people travelled to work on the day of the Census will be available on the website 25 October 2007.
