List Description

The United Kingdom has been re-organizing its local government for the past 20 years or so, making the county (and county-equivalent) situation here quite a jumbled mess. Here, the following scheme is used:

  • England: 120 areas: 48 unitary authorities, 36 metropolitan boroughs, 35 counties, and Greater London. The boroughs of London are sometimes treated as county equivalents, but the usual practice is to consider Greater London as one unit. Changes to this structure in the future are certainly possible, given recent history.
  • Wales: 22 unitary authorities (former counties now gone)
  • Scotland: 32 unitary authorities (former counties now gone)
  • Northern Ireland: 11 districts. These are new as of 2015 and replaced 26 little-loved district councils, which in turn replaced the traditional 6 counties in 1973.

This gives us a total of 185 second-level administrative units for the United Kingdom. It's a somewhat motely menagerie of different animals, but it's the best we can do given the evolving changes.

Another possible list is based on the historic counties or "lieutenancies", which eliminates many of the smaller metropolitan boroughs and unitary authorities. But that list has almost zero governmental reality behind it. So this list, despite its shortcomings, at least has real administrative machinery behind it.
