The North Jutland Region (Danish: Region Nordjylland), on one official website alterated to North Denmark Region, is an administrative region of Denmark established on 1 January 2007 as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform, which abolished the traditional counties ("amter") and set up five larger regions. At the same time, smaller municipalities were merged into larger units, cutting the number of municipalities from 271 before 1 January 2006, when Ærø Municipality was created, to 98. North Jutland Region has 11 municipalities. The reform was implemented in Denmark on 1 January 2007.
The North Jutland Region consists of the former North Jutland County combined with parts of the county of the former Viborg County (the former municipalities of Aalestrup Municipality, Hanstholm Municipality, Morsø Municipality, Sydthy Municipality, Thisted Municipality), and the western half of Mariager Municipality (in the former Aarhus County).
