Chongqing is the largest of the four direct-controlled municipalities of China and is further divided into 25 districts, 9 counties, and 4 autonomous counties.

It had 17 counties until October 2011, when Qijiang County and Wansheng District were merged to form the new Qijiang District, and Dazu County and Shuangqiao District were merged to form the new Dazu District.[1]

From October 2011 to June 2014, Chongqing had 15 counties until Bishan and Tongliang Counties were upgraded into district status. Two further counties were upgraded into district Tongnan and Rongchang Counties were upgraded into districts. In 2016 two additional counties were upgraded into district Kai and Liangping.
