MOTOR VEHICLE CENSUS
The Motor Vehicle Census (MVC) is an annual collection of data on registered vehicles in Australia. The ABS compiles motor vehicle registration statistics from data made available by various state and territory motor vehicle registration authorities. Statistics are collected on passenger vehicles, campervans, light commercial vehicles, all types of trucks, buses and motorcycles.
Results from the latest MVC were released on 14 January 2009 and can be found in Motor Vehicle Census, Australia, 31 Mar 2008 (cat. no. 9309.0). The publication presents statistics relating to vehicles which were registered at 31 March 2008 with a motor vehicle registration authority, including information on the vehicle type, year of manufacture and the make and model of the vehicle. Data are available at the postcode level for all states and territories in Australia.

ABS AGRICULTURE STATISTICS COLLECTION STRATEGY
The ABS has recently released three information papers following a review of the ABS Agricultural Survey Program. These papers outline the proposed changes to the program aimed at improving the statistical information base relevant to agriculture and natural resource management statistics. The information papers can be found in the Agriculture Statistics Collection Strategy (cat. no. 7105.0) publication on the ABS website.
The first paper, ABS Agriculture Statistics Collection Strategy - 2008-09 and beyond 2008-09 presents the ABS' understanding of the key agricultural policy issue imperatives and areas of priority for statistical data development and outlines the proposed changes to the future ABS Agricultural Survey program. The second paper, ABS Agriculture Statistics Collection Strategy - 2008-09 and beyond 2009 outlines the direction and content of the 2008-09 Agricultural Survey, while the third and final paper, ABS Agriculture Statistics Collection Strategy - 2008-09 and beyond 2009-10 focuses on the proposed strategy for the 2009-10 Agricultural Survey, the 2010-11 Agricultural Census, and subsequent ABS Agricultural Surveys and Censuses.
The ABS invites providers and users of agricultural statistics to comment on the proposed collection strategy, with a particular focus on the 2010-11 Agricultural Census collection. To provide feedback, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
