All autonomous prefectures are mostly dominated, in population, by the "Han Chinese. The official name of an autonomous prefecture includes the most "dominant minority in that region, sometimes two, rarely three. For example, a "Kazakh (Kazak in official naming system) prefecture may be called Kazak Zizhizhou. Like all other prefectural level divisions, autonomous prefectures are divided into "county level divisions.
