The statistical area "Tienhoven aan de Lek", which also can include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 230.[1]

Tienhoven was a separate municipality in the province of South Holland between 1817 and 1986, when it became part of Zederik.[2] When Zederik merged into the new municipality Vijfheerenlanden in 2019, it became a part of the province of Utrecht.[3] The name of the town has changed to Tienhoven aan de Lek to distinguish it from Tienhoven, Stichtse Vecht, in the province of Utrecht.[4]
