A SUB-PROVINCIAL DIVISION (simplified Chinese : 副省级行政区; traditional Chinese : 副省級行政區; pinyin : fùshĕngjí xíngzhèngqū) (or deputy-provincial divisions) IN THE PEOPLE\\'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA , is like a prefecture-level city that is governed by a province , but is administered independently in regard to economy and law .

Sub-provincial divisions, similar to prefectural-level divisions, an administrative unit comprising, typically, a main central urban area, and its much larger surrounding rural area containing many smaller cities, towns and villages.

The mayor or chairman of a sub-provincial division is equal in status to a vice-governor of a province. Its status is below that of municipalities , which are independent and equivalent to provinces, but above other, regular prefecture-level divisions, which are completely ruled by their provinces. However, they are marked the same as other provincial capitals (or prefecture-level city if not provincial capital) in almost all maps.
