If your question is about ip address allocation by isp:

whenever a user connect to the isp's network, from a specified range, its server allocates a dynamic ip address mostly or it can be static. if it is static, then the user will have the same ip address for a very long time (based on the deal). But if it is dynamic then it means it will change after some time or upon reconnect.

now the if your question is about your LAN (at work etc):

a computer again can have a fixed ip address assigned by the administrator or dhcp server can give your PC an ip address upon start. You may retain the same ip address for some days if such permission has been granted by the admin.

IP addresses in LAN are normally not public addresses and therefore the range may not matter as long as it is in the same network segment.

What does a non allocated number mean?

Context is very important to a question such as this one; numbers are allocated under various circumstances. For example, let us say that you have a football team and all the members of the team have numbers that they wear on their football uniform so that they can be more easily identified on the field, underneath their obscuring helmets. Once a number is given to a player, that number is thereby allocated. Numbers that have not been given to any player remain non allocated, and thus, are available to be allocated in the event that you have a new person requiring a new number.
