Light utility vehicles (LUV) - vehicles of class N1 with a maximum permissible laden weight not exceeding 3.5 tonnes - are being used more and more frequently to supply the population with goods and services. For this reason, the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat) is funding pilot projects in several countries. In this context, Statistics Austria is conducting a voluntary sample survey in the reporting year 2024. The mileage and goods transported within a reporting day are recorded for randomly selected vehicles.
The sample is drawn from the vehicle population, which is based on data transmissions from the Association of Austrian Insurance Companies (VVO) and includes around 10 000 vehicles of class N1 with a maximum permissible total weight of 3.5 tonnes for the reporting year 2024. The required names and addresses of the companies are obtained from the Statistical Business Register (SBR).
