Bogor Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Bogor) is a regency (kabupaten) of West Java, Indonesia, south of DKI Jakarta. It is considered a bedroom community for Jakarta, and is home to over five million people.[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, although West Bogor Regency is in the process of being split off taking with it some 14 subdistricts (kecamatan).

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 latest official estimate (for January 2014) is 5,131,798.[2] Given that the regency covers 2,663.83 km2 after the spinoffs of Bogor and Depok cities, the density stands at 1,926 people per km2.[3]
