- Registration county
A registration county was, in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, a statistical unit used for the output of
censusinformation. Registration counties were formed by grouping together the registration districts wholly or partly within a county. As registration districts crossed county boundaries, the registration counties did not coincide precisely with any other types of county.
The registration counties were used in census results from 1851 to 1911. They were in part a predecessor of the administrative counties.
33 counties are used in
Scotlandfor land registration purposes. This process began with the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979and started operation on 6 April 1981in the County of Renfrew. The implementation was completed on 1 April 2003when the final tranche of registration counties were operational.
