Purok (English: District[1]) is a political subdivision of a barangay.[2] It is the smallest unit of governance in the Philippines[3] led by a barangay councilor appointed to lead the purok.[4] It is not however a Local Government Unit.

A purok is typically composed of twenty to fifty or more households depending on the particular geographical location and cluster of houses. If created and given a mandate by an ordinance of the barangay, municipality, or city, a purok could perform government functions under the coordination and supervision of local officials.[3]
