German term or phrase: Erwerbstätige vs. Beschäftigte
Erwerbstätige wird im Text aus Sicht des Quellbezirks/Wohnorts verwendet, es entspricht den Personen, die den Bezirk verlassen, um zur Arbeit fahren.
Beschäftigte ist hier auf den Arbeitsplatz bezogen, es entspricht den Personen, die im Zielbezirk angestellt sind und dorthin zur Arbeit fahren (vom Wohnort aus).

Employees würde für beide gehen, aber ich kann es nicht doppelt verwenden. Wie könnte man die Ausdrücke im Englischen unterscheiden?
