Division of the taxpayers into subdistricts is as follows : Vostitsa (1,559 households, 266 bachelors, 87 widows), Hlemoutsi (665 households, 74 bachelors, 42 widows), Goumero (1,368 households, 159 bachelors, 70 widows), Krevukor (1,221 households, 131 bachelors, 51 widows), Arkadia (259 households, 38 bachelors, 16 widows), Leondari (1,153 households, 153 bachelors, 107 widows), Corinth (707 households, 84 bachelors, 83 widows), Palaia Patra (616 households, 65 bachelors, 66 widows), Kalavrita (849 households, 97 bachelors, 35 widows), Mukhli (263 households. 35 bachelors, 16 widows), Bezenik (411 households, 93 bachelors, 26 widows), Kalandritsa (232 households, 34 bachelors, 20 widows), Santomer (241 households, 17 bachelors, 16 widows), Grevcna (588 households, 34 bachelors, 35 widows), Ag. Ilia (630 households, 98 bachelors, 41 widows), Gardichko (671 households, 35 bachelors, 37 widows) and Mistre (9 households, 1 bachelor). The ruling class was not included in the number of taxpaying subjects.

There were 567 villages in the Morea, grouped into 17 subdistricts (12 of them were joined with cities). There were 152 villages inhabited by Greeks, 411 by Albanians and 4 villages by Greeks and Albanians. 26.45 % of the villages of the Morea were made up of Greeks, 72.48 % by Albanians and 0.70 % were mixed. The villages were divided as follows : Vostitsa : 36 Greek + 29 Albanian + 1 mixed = 66 ; Hlemoutsi : 9 Greek + 23 Albanian = 32 villages ; Goumero : 16 Greek + 54 Albanian = 70 villages ; Krevukor : 16 Greek + 52 Albanian = 68 villages ; Arkadia : 9 Greek + 3 Albanian + 2 mixed = 14 villages ; Leondari : 10 Greek + 47 Albanian = 57 villages ; Corinth : 4 Greek + 16 Albanian = 20 villages ; Palaia Patra : 11 Greek + 16 Albanian + 1 mixed = 28 villages ; Kalavrita : 17 Greek + 36 Albanian = 53 villages ; Mukhli : 2 Greek + 4 Albanian = 6 villages ; Bezenik : 5 Greek + 13 Albanian = 18 villages ; Kalandritsa : 13 Albanian villages, Santameri : 1 Greek + 8 Albanian = 9 villages ; Grevena : 5 Greek + 45 Albanian = 50 villages ; Ag. Ilia : 8 Greek + 19 Albanian = 27 villages ; Gardichko : 2 Greek + 33 Albanian = 35 villages ; and Mistra (which was missing) 1 Greek village. The above information was taken from the tahrir defter (survey register) dated 1460-1463. As far as can be determined from the first survey register from the Morea, the Ottomans recorded in detail the population and economic resources taken from the despotate of the Morea and they settled a new ruling class in the region.
