note: Division 1 (aimag) 2010 census population numbers are total population sums; Division 2 (soum) numbers are 'citizens only' (resident population).
note: Mongolian is written in Cyrillic; transcribing it to Latin creates some difficulties as there is no fixed one to one relation between Cyrillic and Latin characters. For instance the Cyrillic "говь" can be transcribed "gobi" or "govi". I try to use, as much as possible, the version used by the Mongolian statistics agency.
note: Area of Tsagaannuur included in Nogoonnuur.
