Counties of Iran

Iran is divided into units with the status of ostan (province), subdivided into shahrestan (counties), which in turn are subdivided into bakhsh (districts). The Statistical Centre of Iran has the following list of counties, representing the divisions as of the month of Shahrivar 1381 in the Persian calendar (2002-08-23 to 2002-09-22 in the Gregorian calendar). I have changed the HASC codes to show new provinces created in 2004 and 2010.

In Ardebil province, the new counties are Givi, Narnin, and Neer; in Esfahan province, Aran, Bigdol, and Shahr-e-Hana; in Golestan province, Bandar Gaz; in Khuzestan province, Omidiyeh; in Mazandaran province, Chaloos; in Qazvin province, Boin Zahra; and in Zanjan province, Ijrud, Khoram Dareh, Mah Neshan, and Tarom.
