(a) Information for Aboriginal Council (AC) and Island Council (IC) LGAs and the residual LGAs from which they were formed, are available only for land area and population estimates (for 2002). See Explanatory Notes for further details.
(b) 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'.
