Employment and commuting
The report on Employment and commuting uses the Workplace origin-destination statistics (linking a resident's home location and workplace location) from the 2001 census, plus information from the Annual business inquiry, Household surveys undertaken by Learning and Skills Council West Yorkshire, and the Annual survey of hours and earnings.
It was produced to provide data on changes in the nature of employment and travel to work patterns in Calderdale. This helps to understand Calderdale's position in local and regional labour markets, and provides a background analysing the dynamics behind commuting in and out of Calderdale and the implications this has for traffic and transport.

Indices of deprivation
The 2010 Indices of deprivation cover the period 2004/5 to 2007/8. The briefing paper is an initial analysis of this information. The geographical base used for the collection and analysis of data is the Lower level Super Output Area (LSOA). These are areas of around 1,500 people and do not fit exactly into ward areas. To represent the data at ward level, each LSOA has to be allocated to one ward only, but this can over or under state the extent of deprivation in each ward:
The 2015 Indices of deprivation have been released since this briefing paper, and the information can be found on Calderdale Data Works|
