Abstract: The difference in development level can affect the prosperity level between the regions, which ultimately will bring about increasing regional inequality. One of the regions in the province of East Java that is experiencing autonomic effects is the Regency of Nganjuk. Aim: This research aims to identify the prominent sectors in Nganjuk Regency (Kabupaten Nganjuk) before and during the Regional Autonomy (Otonomi Daerah). Method: This research uses a quantitative approach. Data used in this research are secondary data which are gained from various sources and literatures that support the needs of the research. Results: The results from this study are, first, Location Quotient (LQ) Analysis in the Nganjuk Regency in the year before the regional autonomy era (1997-1999) shows that there are only three base sectors, which are the agriculture sector, commerce, hotel, and restaurant sector, and services sector. Second, the result of shift share analysis shows that the competitive sectors before the regional autonomy era (1997-1999) are the electricity, gas, and clean water sector and transportation and communication sector. Conclusion: Based on the research results, it can be concluded that between the era before and during the implementation of Regional Autonomy, sectors which were classified as base sectors are not so different. The economic sectors and subsectors that had been base sectors before the implementation of Regional Autonomy in the Nganjuk Regency, still stood as base sectors during the era of Regional Autonomy implementation in the year 2009-2013.
