1/ The registrations given in this table are as reported by the States in most instances, but have been supplemented in some cases by estimates based on data from other sources. In some instances, corrections or revisions have been made in previously published data; consequently the figures shown in Highway Statistics Summary to 1995 supersede those in Highway Statistics Summaries, 1945, 1955, 1965, 1975, and 1985, as well as the annual issues of Highway Statistics.

2/ In this partial classification a vehicle may be included more than once; for instance, a truck-tractor in farm use could appear in both columns.

3/ The figures in these columns may vary substantially from the numbers shown for prior years. This results from new information, such as the 2002 Census of Transportation Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey, and changes in the estimating procedures, and is not because of substantial vehicle registration changes during 2007. Where data reported by the States were incomplete for these vehicles, estimates were made by the Federal Highway Administration. Truck-tractors may include some large trucks used regularly in combination with full trailers.

4/ Except for Georgia and Mississippi (Footnote 5), farm registrations are shown for all States that have a special "Farm" classification. The numbers of vehicles shown do not necessarily represent the total number or registered vehicles used on the farm. The following farm trucks, registered at a nominal fee and restricted to use in the vicinity of the owner's farm, are not included in this table: Connecticut, 6,693; New Hampshire, 10,320; New Jersey, 8,823; New York, 32,489; Pennsylvania, 25,321; and Rhode Island, 4,215.

5/ Although Georgia and Mississippi have a special "Farm" classification, their registration reports do not show a complete segregation of farm trucks from private carriers.

6/ State did not provide current data. Table displays State's 2005 data for private and commercial and state, county and municipal trucks.
