Fabien Antoine sent a link to source , which states that on 2014-07-18 the Government Council ("Conseil de gouvernement") adopted a bill abolishing the districts, leaving no institution intervening between the State and the communes; this would imply that the cantons are also abolished. I haven't been able to find any corroboration yet.
NUTS (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics) is a European standard which assigns codes to regions at various levels
in each country. The NUTS code for Luxembourg is
LU followed by the appropriate number of zeros at levels 0-3.

Luxembourg has been an independent country for the whole of the 20th century.
Old High German Lützelburg: little fort
Luxembourg is divided into three districts.
Luxembourg uses four-digit postal codes. They don't correlate well with district or canton boundaries. Note: postal codes for addresses in Luxembourg can be identified by prefixing them with "L-".
See the Cantons of Luxembourg page.
The districts are subdivided into cantons (Kantone in German), which are further subdivided into municipalities (communes in French, Gemeinden in German).

Note: The detailed results (source ) of the 2001 census show the population of Diekirch as 67,454, and that of Luxembourg district as 320,137. In other words, there is a disagreement between these two sources over whether 183 people should be in Diekirch or Luxembourg.
