In 2014, Manufacturing industry dominated the contribution to the GDP which was 29%, on the other hand mostly the people worked in agricultural sector, and so was the land which mostly agricultural. This statement is also strengthened by the Williamson index which showed that the regional disparities were quite high, with two districts indicated to contributing the most, Kediri and Surabaya City. By using factor analysis, this research will try to answer what factors influencing the disparities statistically and cluster analysis is trying to figure out the disparities spatially. Then it is going to be proven that some districts agglomerated in certain area and can implicate the disparities in East Java.
