Subdistrict is a low level administrative division of a District. In Thailand it may refer to the King Amphoe or to the Tambon. In England and Wales it was part of a Registration district.

In India the Census India calls the units below the districts "sub-district". These are usually called tehsil (taluk/ taluka / mandal).
