ISO 3166-2:LR

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:LR is the entry for Liberia in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Liberia, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 15 counties.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is LR, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Liberia. The second part is two letters.
