Nottinghamshire is divided into seven different districts namely: Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood, Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Broxtowe, Gedling, and Rushcliffe. Between 1974 and 1998, the city of Nottingham was a part of the administration of Nottinghamshire; however, it is now considered a unitary authority and the rest of Nottinghamshire is kept for ceremonial purposes.
In 2006, the Nottinghamshire County has an estimated population of about a little over one million. Half of the total population lives in Greater Nottingham conurbation.
