One of the more interesting data sets from the 2011 National Household Survey is the commuting data. It compares where people work to where they live and you get some very interesting trends. Take the example of Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe. These may be three separate political entities but they are highly integrated from an economic and workforce perspective.
More people are working in Dieppe who live in Moncton than those who live in Dieppe itself. But that balances itself out because almost twice as many Dieppenamese work in Moncton than actually work in Dieppe.
Even Riverview, ships over 610 people every day to feed the labour market needs in Dieppe. While only 195 Dieppenamese work in Riverview, nearly 1,200 Monctonians make the long commute over to Riverview every day for work (tongue firmly implanted in cheek).
