Mojokerto is a regency in East Java province. It constitutes one of the component units of the Surabaya metropolitan area (known as Gerbangkertosusila) which comprises Gresik Regency, Bangkalan Regency, Mojokerto Regency, Mojokerto City, Surabaya City, Sidoarjo Regency, and Lamongan Regency. The population of the Regency was 908,004 in 2000, but had risen to 1,023,526 at the 2010 Census. Many of them earn their living as small farmers and craftsmen (consisting shoemakers, furniture makers, and souvenir makers).

The administrative capital is the city of Mojokerto, which has since 1999 been independent of the regency which surrounds it.

Administration

The Regency is divided into 18 districts (kecamatan), listed below with their populations at the 2010 Census:[1]

The city of Mojokerto, which since 1999 has been administratively independent of the Regency (although the regency administration remains at present centred on the city), virtually divides the regency into two zones - the southern zone comprising the first 14 districts listed above, and the smaller northern zone, comprising the last 4 districts listed above.
