Population density by geographic region, sub-district and district (thicker border indicates higher tier).
There are six main administrative districts of Israel, known in Hebrew as mehozot (מחוזות; singular: mahozמָחוֹז) and Arabic as mintaqah and fifteen sub-districts (also referred to as counties) known as nafot (נפות; singular: nafaנָפָה). Each sub-district is further divided into cities, municipalities, and regional councils it contains.
The figures in this article are based on numbers from the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics and so include all places under Israeli civilian rule including those Israeli-occupied territories where this is the case. Therefore, the Golan sub-district and its four natural regions are included in the number of sub-districts and natural regions even though it is not recognized by the United Nations or the international community as Israeli territory. Similarly, the population figure below for the Jerusalem District was calculated including East Jerusalem whose annexation by Israel is similarly not recognized by the United Nations and the international community. The Judea and Samaria Area, however, is not included in the number of districts and sub-districts as Israel has not applied its civilian jurisdiction in that part of the West Bank.
