(a) Vehicles registered out of the state, or vehicles where the postcodes of owners could not be allocated to an LGA/SD are excluded. As a result, the Queensland totals do not agree with totals published in Motor Vehicle Census, Australia (cat. no. 9309.0), where these vehicles are included as 'Out of state/unspecified'.
