Sums of Mongolia


Sums of Mongolia

A sum ( _mn. сум, "arrow") is a second level administrative subdivision (district) of Mongolia. The Aimags of Mongolia are divided into 315 sums.

On average, each sum administers a territory of 4,200 km² with about 5,000 inhabitants, primarily nomadic herders. It has total revenues of 120 Million Tögrög, 90 % of which come out of national subsidies.

Each sum is again subdivided into "bags". Most bags are of an entirely virtual nature. Their purpose is to sort the families of nomads in the sum into groups, without a permanent human settlement.

Officially, and occasionally on maps, many sum centers bear a name different from that of the sum. However, in practice the sum center is most often referred to under the name of the sum, to the point of the official name of the center being unknown even to the locals.

Some sources give the plural form "Somon" in place of the correct Mongolian plural "Sumd" or "Sumuud".

The sums are listed below, by aimag:
