An arrondissement (French pronunciation: [aʁɔ̃dismɑ̃]) is a level of administrative division in Haiti.
As of 2015, the 10 departments of Haiti were divided into 42 arrondissements.
The term arrondissement can be roughly translated into English as district. A more etymologically precise, but less allegorical, definition would be encirclements, from the French arrondir, to encircle. Because no single translation adequately conveys the layered sense of the word, the French term is usually used in English writing.
The Arrondissements are listed below, by department:
