This is a listing of counties in the U.S. state of Kansas. Select from the links at right to go directly to an article, or browse the listing below for additional information.

Kansas has 105 counties, the sixth-highest total of any state. Every license plate issued by the state contains the abbreviation for the county in which its vehicle is registered. No Kansas county has two words in its name. Wyandotte County and the city of Kansas City operate as a unified government, and Greeley County and the city of Tribune are in the process of converting to a similar system.
