Districts of Uganda

Uganda is divided into 111 districts and one city (the capital city of Kampala)[1] across four administrative regions. Most districts are named after their main commercial and administrative towns.

Each district is further divided into counties and municipalities.[2] The head elected official in a district is the Chairperson of the Local Council V.

Below are population figures from the 2002 Census. County and subcounty data was used to determine figures for the districts created or altered since this census, when there were only 56 districts.[3][4][5] However, some county and subcounty lines may have been altered, leading to slightly inaccurate figures.
