Agdam (Azerbaijani: Ağdam) is a rayon in southwestern Azerbaijan. Its capital is the city of Alibeili. It is a disputed region, with the western half controlled by the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

Population[edit]

  • 1989: 131,293, according to the last Soviet census,[1] the last census able to record the entire rayon, though, with the Nagorno-Karabakh War starting in 1988, it is unknown how well the area could have been surveyed. The last census indisputably able to take a full counting of the area was in 1979, figures are not presently available. The rayon's area was increased after the dissolution of USSR from 1,093 to 1,150 km2.
  • 2009: 175,400, according to the preliminary results of the most recent census of Azerbaijan. The western part of the rayon is not controlled by Azerbaijani government; the figures are estimated.[2]

IDP's from Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding occupied regions were moved to Agdam rayon from tent settlements around the country. The IDPs live in new houses built by the government.[2]
