Hi:
I have several doubts about administrative divisions of United Kingdom.
* first division:
England
Northern Ireland
Wales
Scotland

* second division ???
For example, for ENGLAND, in wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_England#List_of_regions, appear REGIONS:
1. East Midlands
2. East of England
3. Greater London
4. North East England
5. North West England
6. South East England
7. South West England
8. West Midlands
9. Yorkshire and the Humber

but these regions don't appear in geonames ADMIN2


Is there in this foro, some post explaining this matter?

Thanks in advance and regards,
Isa

Hi Isa

The Government Office Regions are not included in the hierarchy as the are hardly ever used and they don't add any value to the hierarchy of the UK.

You find the discussion here:

There is also a blog posting about the UK:
