This SuperTABLE cube contains selected data from the 2008 Motor Vehicle Census.

The 2008 Motor Vehicle Census was conducted at 31 March 2008.


Motor vehicle registration statistics are derived from data provided by State and Territory motor vehicle registration authorities. The statistics reflect information recorded in registration documents and, where possible, use the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to decode the information presented here.

The scope of the statistics in this SuperTABLE cube

    includes - passenger vehicles, campervans, light commercial vehicles, light rigid trucks, heavy rigid trucks, articulated trucks, non-freight carrying trucks, buses and motorcycles, including State and Commonwealth owned vehicles registered for unrestricted use on Australian roads.
    excludes -vehicles with diplomatic and consular plates, vehicles belonging to the defence forces, recreation vehicles such as trail bikes and sand dune buggies (in those States where registration is not required), and unpowered vehicles such as caravans and trailers, trailed plant and equipment.


This SuperTABLE cube allows tables to be built using these fields:
    Make - the name of the vehicle make
    Model - the name of the vehicle model
    Postcode - the postcode of the address of the registered vehicle owner
    State/territory - New South Wales
    Vehicle Type - passenger vehicles, campervans, light commercial vehicles, light rigid trucks, heavy rigid trucks, articulated trucks,non-freight carrying trucks, buses and motorcycles
    Year of manufacture - The year in which the vehicle was manufactured available in groups of 1901 to 1950, 1951 to 1960, 1961 to 1970, 1971 to 1980, 1981 to 1990, yearly thereafter to 2008 and not stated.

    Note: Supertable has a limitation on the number of cells that can be generated. For this reason, tables cross-classifying many items may not produce. This is an issue for the larger states and users may need to subset the inquiry to achieve results.
