Travel to Work
The map below illustrates the ‘economic interplay’ between the East Riding and surrounding local authorities according to travel-to-work data collected in the 2011 Census. Travel flows have remained remarkably similar between 2001 and 2011, as a significant number of residents commute out of the East Riding for employment, which is perhaps to be expected in a rural authority bordering major urban areas.
In 2011 there were 83,400 people that both lived and worked in the East Riding of Yorkshire, which represents a retention rate of 60.7% for residents aged 16-64 that were in employment in the week before the Census. Outflow is predominantly to Hull (33,100; 24.0%), York (5,500; 4.0%), and Selby District (2,500; 1.8%). The only significant change in numbers has been the increase in the number of people commuting into the East Riding for work from Hull (+5,100), Doncaster (+700), and Selby District (+500). In total, 18,900 people stated that they mainly worked from home, which is the third highest number in the region behind Leeds and Bradford.

Claimant Count by ward map
Source: DWP (2019-03)
The map above shows the number of claimants by ward. Claimant count is calculated using the proportion of working age people receiving benefits, principally Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), for being unemployed. Areas to highlight are Bridlington, Goole and South East Holderness which have high numbers of claimants for each indicator shown on the map compared to the East Riding as a whole.
