Districts of Turkey

The 81 provinces of Turkey are divided into 973 districts (ilçeler; sing. ilçe). In the early Turkish Republic and in the Ottoman Empire, the corresponding unit was the kaza.

The provinces bear the same name as their respective provincial capital districts (with the exception of the district of Antakya (in Hatay).[] A district may cover both rural and urban areas. One district of a province is designated the central district (merkez ilçe) from which the district is administered. The central district is administered by an appointed provincial deputy governor and other the non-central districts by an appointed sub-governor (kaymakam) from their district center (ilçe merkezi) municipality. In central districts the district center municipality also serves as the provincial center municipality. Both the deputy governor and sub-governors are responsible to the province governor (vali).

Local government

Municipalities (belediye) can be created in, and are subordinate to, the districts in which they are located. Each district has at least one municipality (belde) in the district center from which both the municipal government for that municipality and the district government is administered. A municipality is headed by an elected mayor (belediye ba?kan?) who administers the local government for defined municipal matters. More and more settlements which are outside district centers have municipalities as well, usually because their population requires one. A municipality's borders usually correspond to that of the urban settlement it covers, but may also include some undeveloped land.

Villages (köy) outside municipalities and quarters or neighborhoods (mahalle) within municipalities are the lowest level of local government, and are also the most numerous unit of local government in Turkey. They elect muhtars to care for specific administrative matters such as residence registration. The designation slightly differs (köy muhtar? for village muhtar, mahalle muhtar? for quarter muhtar) and the tasks, which are largely similar but are adapted to their locality.

There are büyük?ehir belediyesi (or greater municipalities) for large cities like ?stanbul or ?zmir and consist of an extra administrative layer run by an elected head mayor, who oversees a number of municipalities and mayors.[]

List of districts with population

The districts and their populations (as of December 31, 2019) are listed below, by region and by province (with capital district in bold text).

In 16 provinces with greater municipality the total population of the province is not equal to the summation of all district populations. In greater municipalities some (in case of ?stanbul and Kocaeli all) districts are within the capital city. Those intracity districts are shown as " (central district) " . The population in central districts is also shown in the boldface capital city. In greater municipalities, the actual population of the province is the sum of all district populations except the boldface capital city.[] (This is true only for 30 greater municipalities; Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Ayd?n, Bal?kesir, Bursa, Denizli, Diyarbak?r, Erzurum, Eski?ehir, Gaziantep, Hatay, ?stanbul, ?zmir, Kahramanmara?, Kayseri, Kocaeli, Konya, Malatya, Manisa, Mardin, Mersin, Mu?la, Ordu, Sakarya, Samsun, ?anl?urfa, Tekirda?, Trabzon, Van. For the remaining 51 provinces the population figures for districts add up to the total province population. See Metropolitan centers in Turkey)
