cycle

 

This report presents findings from the 2014/15 Continuous Household Survey (CHS). 2014/15 was the first year that this question set was included in the CHS and this is the first such report produced by the Central Statistics and Research Branch (CSRB) of the Department for Regional Development (DRD). The publication is available on the CSRB website.

The key points from the report are:

Cycling to/ from Work

  • Of the 1,662 respondents who travel to work, one in fifty (2%) said they normally cycle to work AND from work, a small percentage (0.1%) said they normally cycle to work OR from work and the majority (98%) said they do not cycle to or from work.
  • Of the 37 respondents who reported that they normally cycle to work AND from work, almost half (46%) cycle 2–3 miles, on average, in one direction. Over a fifth (22%) cycle 6 miles or more, just under a fifth (19%) cycle 4–5 miles and one in seven (14%) cycle 1 mile or less in one direction.
  • The majority (97%) of respondents who normally cycle to work AND from work reported that they cycle all the way and one in thirty (3%) reported that they cycle part of the way.
  • Just under half (49%) of respondents who reported that they normally cycle to work AND from work said they cycle 5 days per week on average. Just under a quarter (24%) said they cycle 3 days per week, approximately one in six (16%) said they cycle 2 days per week and one in twenty (5%) said 4 days per week and 1 day per week.

Walking to/ from Work

  • Of the 1,652 respondents who travel to work, a tenth (10%) said they normally walk to work AND from work, a small percentage (1%) said they normally walk to work OR from work and the majority (89%) said they do not walk to or from work.
  • Respondents aged 16–24 (20%) and 25–34 (15%) were more likely to normally walk to work AND/ OR from work than those aged 35–49 (9%) and 50–64 (9%).
  • Female respondents (14%) were more likely to normally walk to work AND/ OR from work than male respondents (8%).
  • Respondents from urban areas (15%) were more likely to normally walk to work AND/ OR from work than those from rural areas (4%).
