The department is the second level of administrative divisions on the map of France. This division into departments is between the region and the district ("arrondissement").
Each department belongs to a single region. (Each of four overseas region being composed of a single department).
France is divided into 101 departments. They are divided into 343 districts ("arrondissements"), 4 058 townships ("cantons") and 36 699 Towns ("communes").
Each department has a capital city or prefecture which includes its institutions. This capital is often the largest city of the department.
According to figures (in 1999), the median population of a department of continental France was 511 012 inhabitants.
The skills of the department are:
- Social Action
- Restructure rural land
- Maintenance of colleges
- School and transport
The removal of one or more local levels is being debated in France for several years and especially the option to remove department level.
For now, the Balladur committee dealing with the reform of local government did not adopt this proposal, so there is currently no change at the departmental level.

The region is the first level of administrative divisions on the map of France.
Before the French Revolution of 1789, France was divided into provinces from the historical feudal history. Some of these regions roughly correspond to the current regions.
During the revolution these provinces were abolished and the French territory was divided into 83 departments.
On 5 April 1919, the first ministerial decree establishes the first regional grouping called "regions Clémentel".
From the First World War, the development of transport, urban, building regionalist ideas, leading some to question the desirability of creating larger administrative divisions than departments.
Skills in the region include:
- Territory development
- Economic development
- Vocational training
- Maintenance of schools
- Rail transport
The first election of Regional Councillors by universal suffrage was in March 16, 1986. Regions became officialy french divisions as departments and municipalities.
