Mnemonic (reference code): MTWSPS

Definition: This variable records how persons usually travel to their main place of work or study (including school). The question asks the person to tick one box only, which describes for the longest part, by distance, of their usual journey. It is not asked of people who have answered 'not currently working or studying' or 'work or study mainly at or from home' to the travel address question.

The questions on travel covered travel to both work and study. It is assumed that responses from persons in employment who are not full-time students related generally to travel to place of work.
