This creates an entry in a table of counties in the United States. Features:

Normal usage

{{Countyrow |Name= |N= |Num= |Seat= |Data1= |Data2= ... |Data6= |Population= |Area= |Alt= }}

Required parameters

  • Name= is the name of the county without the word "County" as used in the link, e.g. Los Angeles County, California or Arlington County, Virginia you would use Name=Los Angeles or Name=Arlington etc.
  • N= is the two-digit FIPS state code of the county's state, e.g. N=04 for Arizona, N=10 for Delaware, etc. The name of the state will be composed from this number.
  • Num= is the three-digit fips county code for that county, e.g. N=001 or N=037 etc.
  • Seat= is the county seat. The state's name is included automatically in the wikilink. Can be replaced with noseat parameter (see below)
  • Population= is the population of the county. This must be given as a raw number without any commas, as the etmplate formats this value using the {{nts}} template.
  • Area= is the total area of the county:
    • If this is a raw number, then the template will assume its the area in square miles, format it with {{nts}}, and also give the area in square kilometers.
    • If this isn't a raw number, then the value is displayed unaltered
  • A map is automically generated, using the information from the parameters given, with a size of 150px. See also map and size paramets below.

Optional parameters

  • Type= Normally, the county link is of the form [['name' county, state|'name' county]]. If non-empty, then link becomes [['name' 'type', state|'name' 'type']].
    • Notype=yes results in no addition being appended to the county name. (e.g. for City and County of Honolulu).
  • Noseat= is used when a county doesn't have one seat. The value of this parameter is displayed instead. (For example, a note about the lack of seat, or the details of multiple seats)
  • Data1=... Data6= up to six columsn of additional information can be included. Convention is to include (in the following order):
    1. The county's licence plate code (where applicable)
    2. County's creation date/year
    3. The county's origin (which counties it was formed out of)
    4. The etymology of the county name
  • Map= is the name of the image to used for the county map when the autmatically generated version doesn't work. The Image: prefix must not be included. Default size is 150px.
  • Alt= is the alt text for the map, for visually impaired readers; it is used both for automatically generated maps and for explicitly specified maps. Please see WP:ALT for more about alt text. The default alt text is Map of state highlighting {county name}.
  • Size= is used when 150px produces a map that is too big. Example: Size=100px
  • Showstate=yes results in the state's name being appended to the county name, and the full FIPS code for the county being displayed (i.e. including state two digit code).


The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.


If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.


hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.


When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
