Texas Counties - Cities, Towns, Neighborhoods, Maps & Data
There are 254 counties in Texas. All counties are functioning governmental units, each governed by a Commissioners Court.
There are 862 county subdivisions in Texas. They are all census county divisions (CCDs), which are delineated for statistical purposes, have no legal function, and are not governmental units. CCDs were first established in Texas for the 1960 census. Prior to 1960, the minor civil divisions used in the census included justice precincts and commissioner's precincts as well as beats, election precincts, voting precincts, and school districts.
