Cantons[change | change source]

After the reorganisation of the cantons in France,[4] cantons are not subdivisions of the arrondissements so they could have communes that belong to different arrondissements.

In the arrondissement of Dax, there are only two cantons where not all their "communes" are in the arrondissement: Côte d'Argent and Pays morcenais tarusate. The following table shows the distribution of the "communes" in the cantons and arrondissements:
