Subdivisions of Egypt
Egypt is divided, for the purpose of public administration, according to a three-layer hierarchy and some districts are further subdivided, creating an occasional fourth layer.
The top-level of the hierarchy are 27 governorates (singular: محافظةmuḥāfẓa, plural: محافظاتmuḥāfẓat). The second-level, beneath and within governorates, are marakiz (singular: مركزmarkaz, plural: مراكزmarakiz) or aqsam (singular: قسمqism, plural: أقسامaqsam). The third-level is composed of districts (singular: حيḥay, plural: أحياءaḥya') and villages (singular: قريةqarya, plural: قرىqura). There is a governing structure at each of these levels.[1][2] Districts may be further divided into sub-districts as a fourth level.
There are also seven economic regions used for planning purposes, defined by the General Organization for Physical Planning (GOPP).
Provincial divisions
Main article: Governorates of Egypt
Egypt is divided into 27 governorates (muhāfazāt) and each has a capital and at least one city.[3] Each governorate is administered by a governor, who is appointed by the President of Egypt and serves at the president's discretion. Most governorates have a population density of more than one thousand per km2, while the three largest have a population density of less than two per km2.[4] The governorates of Egypt are:

Submunicipal divisions
The village is the smallest local unit in rural communities, and is the equivalent of a district in urban areas. However, villages differ from each other in terms of legal status. The heads of villages or districts are appointed by the respective governors.[8] In addition to this, districts are occasionally further divided into sub-district neighborhoods called sheyakha in rural areas, or residential districts (singular: حي سكنيḥay sakani, plural: أحياء سكنيةaḥya' sakaniya) in urban areas.[9]
