Administrative division of departments.

The department and the second level of administrative division of the French Republic after the region (first level). This administrative division was created on 22 December 1789. In 2011, the number of French departments will increase from 100 to 101. Indeed, on 31 March 2011, Mayotte became the 101st French department and the 5th overseas department. The departments have structures representing the State and responsible for implementing government policy. In order to situate the department at the level of administrative division, it is necessary to know that a region contains one or more departments and a department itself subdivided into several arrondissements. The departments are numbered from 01 to 95 for metropolitan France (except for the departments of Corsica, which are numbered 2A and 2B) and from 971 to 976 for the overseas departments.
