The present municipality consists of more than 50 original local government units, joined together in two structural reforms carried out in 1952, when the number was reduced to eight, and during the period 1971-1974. In 1971 the former City of Falköping was made a unitary municipality and three years later amalgamated with the surrounding municipalities.
