As a unit of area, a square perch (the perch being standardized to equal 16 ^{1}/_{2} feet, or 5 ^{1}/_{2} yards) is equal to a square rod, 30 ^{1}/_{4} square yards (25.29 square metres) or ^{1}/_{160} acre.
There are 40 square perches to a rood (e.g., a rectangular area one furlong (10 chains i.e. 40 rods) in length by one rod in width), and 160 square perches to an acre (an area one furlong by one chain (i.e. 4 rods)).
This unit is usually referred to as a perch or pole even though square perch and square pole were the more precise terms. Confusingly, rod was sometimes used as a unit of area to mean a rood.
