|Number of vehicles by vehicle type and region. The regions are established from the WoF/CoF inspection location rather than the owner address, to avoid the vehicles registered to the Auckland Head Office effect.|
Nature of data
|Primary source||NZ Transport Agency - Motor Vehicle Register|
|Custodian of data||Ministry of Transport|
Regional data shown here has not been previously published. National data may be found at
https://transport.govt.nz/assets/Uploads/Data/NZ-Vehicle-Fleet-Graphs-2016-web3.xlsx - annual fleet report spreadsheet tab "1.1, 1.2"
|Disaggregation||By vehicle type and region. For definitions of the vehicle types used, see Vehicle type categorisation|
|Quality of the data||Reliable. These numbers are not the same as NZTA data. NZTA regards vehicles as being in the fleet for a year after the owner does not relicense them, whereas MoT is removing them from the statistics at the point of licence expiry. This produces a lower but more realistic fleet estimate. The regional data excludes the Chathams, and the vehicles with unknown region (due to lack of WoF/CoF inspection location) have been distributed proportionately across the remaining regions.|
