As of the 2012 census,[1] the 30 regions of Tanzania were divided into 169 districts (Swahili: wilaya).

In 2016 Songwe Region was created from the western part of Mbeya Region.[2][3]

Districts are each administered by a district council. Cities are separately administered by their own councils, and while administratively within a region, are not considered to be located within a district. The districts are listed below, by region:
