Bogor Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Bogor) is a regency (kabupaten) of West Java, Indonesia, south of DKI Jakarta. Covering an area of 2,986.20 km2, it is considered a bedroom community for Jakarta, and was home to 5,427,068 people at the 2020 Census.[1] Its administration is located in Cibinong.

It is bordered by Tangerang Regency, the cities of South Tangerang, Depok and Bekasi, and finally Bekasi Regency, all to the north, Sukabumi Regency to the south, Cianjur Regency to the southeast, and Karawang Regency to the east; it fully encircles Bogor City, although the latter is administratively independent of the regency. It is bordered by Lebak Regency (in Banten Province) to the west.

The area has witnessed significant population growth. Two areas formerly within the regency have been split off as autonomous cities; on 20 April 1999, the city of Depok was unified with some neighbouring districts of Bogor Regency to form an autonomous city of Depok (independent of the regency); and Bogor city is also an autonomous city (similarly independent of the regency).


In the 2010 census the regency (minus the autonomous cities) counted 4,770,744 people, of which 2,450,426 are male. The 2020 Census showed this had grown to 5,427,068.[1] The Regency is the most populous in Indonesia. Given that the regency covers 2,986.20 km2 after the separation of Bogor and Depok cities, the density stands at 1,817 people per km2.[2]

The Dutch name of the regency was 'Regentschap Buitenzorg'.

Meanwhile, in Sukamakmur District and Tanjungsari District the population of Javanese is below 3%.
