Florida has 67 counties, two of which complement the Spanish territorial divisions retained as part of the U.S. state of Florida, which became a U.S. territory in 1821. The Suwannee River divides both counties. These two original counties formed the basis for all the other counties. In 1845, Florida became the 27th U.S. state, and its last county was created from a segment of Alachua County in 1925. As of the 2020 census, Miami-Dade County’s population is 2,701,767, making it the seventh-largest county in the country.
