Motor Vehicle Census Stats


Compilation Report

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia in collaboration with BDO collect data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) annually through the Motor Vehicle Census. We have combined Motor Vehicle Census data with the 2011 and 2016 Census of Population and Housing to identify the number of dwellings by state and by postcode. This aggregation provides the ‘Per 100 Dwellings’ measure presented in the Report above.

State-based registration counts rely on the grouping and reporting of geocoded postcode information. This geographic data from the Motor Vehicle Census is postcode of owner, which differs to state or territory of registration. This approach and reporting mechanism may differ to other methods and relies on the accuracy of ABS postcode data supplied.

We do not accept liability for any loss or damage which any person may suffer arising from any negligence on our part. No person should rely on this Report without having an audit or review conducted.
