Sub-Districts of Indonesia (Indonesian: Kecamatan) are third-level administrative subdivision, immediately below the Regency-City (Indonesian: Kabupaten-Indonesian: Kota) subdivision and above the Administrative Villages Indonesian: Kelurahan. The English name Sub-District for Kecamatan emphasized the position of Kecamatan as below the District-level subdivisions of Regency Indonesian: Kabupaten and City Indonesian: Kota.
In Indonesia, all third-level administrative subdivisions are officially known as Sub-Districts (Kecamatan), with the exception of the Province of Papua and West Papua, which instead used the term District (Indonesia Distrik) for the same administrative level with Kecamatan. To reduce confusion, the Indonesian translation of the third-level administrative subdivision will be mainly used: Kecamatan for Sub-District, and Distrik for District.
Kecamatan (Distrik for the Province of Papua and West Papua) are Sub-District Administrations. A Kecamatan is a non-autonomous administrative unit headed by a Camat (or Kepala Distrik (District Head) in case of Papua and West Papua). One Kecamatan generally headed about 20 Administrative Villages. The Kecamatan office is in charge of the administration of the Sub-District's social welfare and economic affairs. Some national government departments have branches in the Kecamatan office.
