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 currently home to over 5 million people.[1]

It is bordered by Tangerang Regency, the cities of South Tangerang, Depok and Bekasi, and finally Bekasi Regency, all to the north; it is also bordered by Lebak Regency (in Banten Province) to the west, 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.

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 (until then a part of the Regency) 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). The Indonesian government has announced that it intends to divide the existing Bogor Regency by splitting off the western districts to form a new West Bogor Regency (Kabupaten Bogor Barat).

In the residual area of the Regency, the 2010 census 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]
