DATA ITEM LIST

The Survey of Motor Vehicle Use, Australia, in the Survey TableBuilder has been released in two datasets, Motor Vehicle Use, 2018 - Number of vehicles and Motor Vehicle Use, 2018. The two datasets contains the following data items for cross-tabulation. A list of all classifications available for use within the TableBuilder, including classification details, can be found on the Downloads tab.

CLASSIFICATIONS - MOTOR VEHICLE USE, 2018 - NUMBER OF VEHICLES

Summations

Vehicle related variables
Number of vehicles = Calculated estimates for number of vehicles.
Value = Not for use.

CLASSIFICATIONS - MOTOR VEHICLE USE, 2018

Summations

Use related variables
Kilometres travelled = Calculated estimates for distance travelled in kilometres (Kms).
Tonne-kilometres travelled = Calculated estimates for tonne-kilometres travelled (T-kms), aggregated sum of tonnes x kilometres.
Tonnes carried = Calculated estimates for tonnes carried in tonnes (Tonnes).
Value = Not for use.

Vehicle related variables
