The measurement of the lateral distribution of extensive air showers by the ARGO-YBJ experiment is presented. The ARGO-YBJ experiment has two kinds of readout: a digital readout for small particle densities (<23 strips/m2) and an analog readout for large particle densities (up to 10^4/m2). For lateral distribution studies, the inner core region is measured by the analog readout, while farther regions are measured by the digital readout. This allows the study of the lateral distribution function in a wide interval of distances from the shower core.
