note: De facto, Moldova is split into 3 separate autonomous units: Moldova proper, Gagauzia (Gagauz Yeri), and Transnistria (Pridnestrovskaya Moldavskaya Respublika, PMR). De jure, Gagauzia is not subdivided, nor is Transnistria, except for Bender which forms a 37th Municipiul.
note: Total population 2010 is without Transnistria (= Stinga Nistrului).
note: Raionul = raion; municipiul = city; unitatea teritoriala = territorial unit; unitate teritoriala autonoma = autonomous territory.
