A merger, consolidation or amalgamation, in a political or administrative sense, is the combination of two or more political or administrative entities, such as municipalities, counties, districts, etc., into a single entity. This term is used when the process occurs within a sovereign entity. Unbalanced growth or outward expansion of one neighbor may necessitate an administrative decision to merge. In some cases, common perception of continuity may be a factor in prompting such a process. Some cities that have gone though amalgamation or a similar process had several administrative sub-divisions or jurisdictions, each with a separate person in charge. Annexation is similar to amalgamation, but differs in being applied mainly to two cases: ⁕The units joined are sovereign entities before the process, as opposed to being units of a single political entity. ⁕A city's boundaries are expanded by adding territories not already incorporated as cities or villages.
