History and Administrative Division . Yaroslavl Gubernia bordered on Novgorod and Vologda Gubernia in the north, Kostroma Gubernia in the east, Vladimir Gubernia in the south and Tver Gubernia in the west.
Yaroslavl Gubernia was divided in 10 districts (Uyezds) : Yaroslavl, Danilov, Lyubim, Mologa, Myshkin, Poshekhon, Romanovo-Borisoglyebsk, Rostov, Rybinsk and Uglich.
The Zemstvo Laws passed in 1864 granted regional self-government on Gubernia and Uyezd level; the regional administrative bodies are refererred to as Zemstvos. The Zemstvos were abolished in the course of the October Revolution.

Population . The population in 1811 was 993,000, in 1840 1,012,800, in 1867 999,400, in 1885 1,049,900, in 1915 1,416,700 (Lahmeyer). The vast majority of the population consisted of Russians, belonging to the Russian Orthodox Church.

Economy . The Volga, Sheksna, Mologa and Kotorost Rivers (the last three tributaries of the Volga) are navigable; Yaroslavl Gubernia, via the Mariinsk and Tikhjvinsk Canals, was connected with the Neva River system. By 1906, 7 % of the land was owned by the crown, 30 % by individual owners (estates), 57 % by peasant communities (EB 1911). The area produced mainly rye and oats, cherries and apples. In 1883, 27 % of the land was farmland, 29 % pastorage, 36 % forest and 8 % barren land. Among the industries, textile industry, distilleries, tobacco processing, production of mill supplies and chemical industry were the strongest.
