Geography[edit]

The southern part of the commune overlaps with the urban area of Dijon and the area covered by the town is quite large however the rest of the commune is mostly forest in the west and farmland in the east.

The Suzon stream passes through the length of the commune from the north, forming part of the north-eastern boundary and flowing to the southern border and south to Dijon.[2]

Demography[edit]

In 2009, the commune had 1,277 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 [1], the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
