Administrative divisions

Each region is divided into districts (Tajik: ноҳия, nohiya or Russian: район, rayon), which are further subdivided into municipal units: either as urban municipalities called either as cities (Tajik: шаҳр, romanizedşahr, "cities") or towns (Tajik: шаҳрак, romanizedşahrak, "towns"), or as rural municipalities called jamoats (Tajik: ҷамоати деҳот, romanizedjamoati dehot, "village communes"), which in turn are further subdivided into villages/settlements (Tajik: деҳа or қишлоқ, romanizeddeha or qyshloq, "villages/hamlets").

As of 2020, Tajikistan has a total of 47 (not including 4 districts of the capital city Dushanbe) districts; prior to 2017 it had about 58.
