on methods, definitions: Motor vehicle statistics (registrations
of new and used vehicles as well as the stock of vehicles) are secondary
statistics, compiled on the basis of daily data files sent to Statistics Austria
by Austria’s association of insurance companies (VVO). VVO, in turn,
receives data by the insurances’ registrations offices, responsible
for registrations, de-registrations and rectifications of motor vehicles
and trailers. The motor vehicle statistics, therefore, basically contains
all registration data, regardless of the duration of the registration.
A short-term registration is a new car registration that will be de-registered within a certain period. A new car registration with a registration period of up to seven days means that the car is de-registered after the first registration on the day of registration or within the following seven days. This applies accordingly to short-term registrations with a registration period of up to 30, 60, 90 and 120 days. Daily registered cars are registered and de-registered within 24 hours.
In this context, the reporting month indicates the month in which de-registration was carried out. Only the first registration date and the de-registration date (=execution of de-registration done in insurances’ registrations offices) of a vehicle are crucial to be classified as "short-term registration".
