Municipalities and barrios of Puerto Rico


There are no first-order administrative divisions as defined by the United States Government, but Puerto Rico has 78 municipalities or "municipios" at the second order. For U.S. Census purposes, a municipality in Puerto Rico is equivalent to a county. They are conveniently grouped into eight electoral districts, which do not possess administrative functions. In 1991, the Autonomous Municipalities of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico law was created as a strategy for the decentralizing and the improving government services to the people. In recent years, several mayors have demanded a revision of the law .

The municipalities elect a Mayor and a legislative assembly in the general elections every 4 years.
