Description
  • Abstract

    This data set covers the development of the stock of motor vehicles in the FRG. Goal of the study is to make changes in the data collection system transparent and comprehensible. For example, for some years the vehicles which had a registration number but which did not require authorization were listed separately. Later those vehicles were assigned to the vehicles that require authorization. This resulted in a strong increase in the stock of motor vehicles in 1980 which cannot be reduced to an increase in purchases. List of variables: - Population - Density of motor vehicles and motorcycles - Authorized motor vehicles (explicitly mentioned: motorcycles, passenger cars, ambulances, omnibuses, trucks, tractors) Register of tables in HISTAT: - Stock of motor vehicles by vehicle types in the FRG (exclusive vehicles that not require authorization for the years 1977-79) - Stock of motor vehicles by vehicle types in the FRG (inclusive vehicles that not require authorization for the years 1977-79) - Stock of motor vehicles by vehicle equipment in the FRG at the first of July of each year (1938-1992)
