Law/Patents - Law (general) / Reg. Dist. N° (confirmation about the meaning)
English term or phrase: Reg. Dist. N°
Hi,
What is the exact meaning of "Reg. Dist. N°" on American birth certificates ? "Registration district N°"? "Registrar's district N°".
Please note I asked the same question on the English to French forum but I just need a confirmation about the exact meaning in English.
(I understand my query may be a bit unusual as I do not exactly require a translation so I'll just set the level as non-pro).
Thanks for your help.

agree  Alice Bootman: While US birth certificates are not uniform (they are issued by state), I would say Graham's suggestion is correct.
