Journey to work is data collected as part of a census that describes aspects of commuting behaviour. Travel behaviour surveys may also describe commuting habits, but this is rarely considered to be a journey to work.
Data collected includes the mode (or modes) used by an individual to travel from home to work, and may also include the time that it takes to do so or the workplace location.
