Île-de-France is one of the twenty-six regions of France. It was created as the "District of the Paris Region" in 1961 and, with borders unchanged, was transformed into the Île-de-France region in 1976. Despite the name change, Île-de-France is still popularly referred to by French people as the Région Parisienne ("Paris Region") or RP.
Île-de-France is the most populated region of France, having more residents than Belgium, Greece, or Sweden, and a comparable population to the U.S. state of Ohio. It is the fourth most populous country subdivision in the European Union after England, North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria with a total population of 11,491,000.
