A county-controlled district (sometimes translated as county-governed district; county district or sub-county; S.Chinese: 县辖区,区; T.Chinese:縣轄區,區; pinyin: xiànxiáqǖ, qǖ) is a sub-county in P R China. as branch of a county government, a district public office(区公所) is the administrative office in a district, it is not a local government. A county-controlled district was once an important subdivision of a county all over China from 1950s to 1990s. It was common for there to be about 5 to 10 districts in a county, then about 3 to 5 towns and townships in a district. After the 1990s, county-controlled districts began to be phased out, and their role were taken over by larger towns or townships created by merging smaller ones.
At the end of 2009, there are just 3 county-controlled districts left in China, all in Xinjiang.
