North Rhine-Westphalia: 4.8 million commute to work in NRW

Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) - 4.8 million people commute to work in North Rhine-Westphalia. With 346,000 people, Cologne is the “strongest commuting hub” in the federal state, followed by Düsseldorf (320,000) and Essen (158,000), as the State Statistical Office IT.NRW announced on Tuesday.

The commuter calculation is based on evaluations of information about the place of residence and work for 2021 and therefore only represents potential mobility. The journey from the place of residence to the place of work does not necessarily have to be daily, but could, for example, be covered on individual days of the week or only weekly. Information on the means of transport is not given in the evaluation.

Accordingly, commuter mobility in North Rhine-Westphalia is concentrated on two main traffic axes: between north and south from Duisburg to Bonn and on a west-east axis from Mönchengladbach via the Ruhr area to Dortmund and Bielefeld. 30,646 people commuted between Cologne and Bonn alone, 16,026 of them from Cologne to Bonn and 14,620 in the opposite direction.

In 90 of the 396 NRW towns and municipalities, the number of people commuting in was higher than that of people commuting out (so-called commuting surplus). The highest commuting rates were in the Lower Rhine municipality of Rheurdt in the district of Kleve (85.5 percent) and in Inden in the lignite opencast mining area near Düren (85.2 percent). The statisticians recorded the lowest commuting rates in Münster (26.8 percent) and Cologne (29.9 percent).
