The Milton Keynes economy is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic economies in the UK. The success of the local economy as illustrated by the growth of new jobs within the Borough has encouraged people to come to live and work within Milton Keynes, increasing the local population and the demand for housing. Another consequence of the growth of the local economy is that it encourages commuting to the city from people living in surrounding areas. In 2011 Milton Keynes had 16,700 more people commuting in for work than commuting out with around 44,500 people commuting into Milton Keynes to work and around 27,800 commuting out.
