As of 2020, the regions of Tajikistan are subdivided into 47 districts (Tajik: ноҳия, nohiya or Russian: район, rayon), not including 4 districts belonging to the capital city Dushanbe, and 18 cities of regional subordination (including Dushanbe, an extraregional capital city).[1] Before ca. 2017, there were 58 districts.[2][3][4] The districts are further subdivided into rural municipalities called jamoats, which in turn are further subdivided into villages (or deha or qyshqol).

The numbering of the districts follows the map.
