      [Abstrak]

          In Indonesia the
      cities have continously growth. However they varied in size. Some cities have
      the population above two million citizens, while some have below than five
      hundred thousands. Some economic factors are hypothesized to influence such
      distribution. This study aims to test the rank-size (Zipf’s law) and to find
      the determinants of size distribution of cities. The panel data method is
      employed to satisfy the objectives of study. All district and provincial level
      data are used for year 1995,2000 and 2005. the pareto exponent shows that the
      rank-size rule does not matter in Indonesia. Level of agglomeration
      economies, local government expenditure and number of administrative city
      increases the concentration of size of cities. The labor force participation and
      region’s openness affects the size of cities to be equally distributed.
