Di-jet event rates have been measured for deep-inelastic scattering in the kinematic domain
$\stackrel{\textstyle<}{\sim}$ Q2 $\stackrel{\textstyle<}{\sim}$ $100 \mbox{ GeV}^2 $ and 10-4 $\stackrel{\textstyle<}{\sim}$ \ensuremath{x_{\mathit{Bj}}} $\stackrel{\textstyle<}{\sim}$ 10-2, and for jet transverse momenta squared pt*2 $\stackrel{\textstyle>}{\sim}$ Q2. The analysis is based on data collected with the H1 detector at HERA in 1994 corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 2 pb-1. Jets are defined using a cone algorithm in the photon-proton centre of mass system requiring jet transverse momenta of at least 5 GeV. The di-jet event rates are shown as a function of Q2 and \ensuremath{x_{\mathit{Bj}}}. Leading order models of point-like interacting photons fail to describe the data. Models which add resolved interacting photons or which implement the colour dipole model give a good description of the di-jet event rate. This is also the case for next-to-leading order calculations including contributions from direct and resolved photons.
