Aizy-Jouy is a French commune in the department of Aisne in the Picardy region of northern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Azyjois or Aizyjoises.[1]

Geography[edit]

Aizy-Jouy is some 15 km north-east of Soissons and 20 km south-east of Laon. National Highway N2 from Soissons to Laon passes just north of the commune. The commune can be accessed by Highway D14 running south from the N2 continuing through the heart of the commune and the town continuing south to Vailly-sur-Aisne. Highway D15 branches from the D14 at the southern border of the commune and heads north-east through the eastern part of the commune and then to Pargny-Filain. There are also several small country roads criss-crossing the commune and exiting on all sides of the commune. There are no villages or hamlets in the commune other than Aizy-Jouy.[2]

A stream rises from ponds north of the town and flows south through the commune joining with other streams rising in the north-east of the commune and flowing south to the Aisne river. The commune has a substantial amount of forest mostly following the course of the streams with the rest of commune (about 30%) farmland.[2]

Demography[edit]

Before 1971, the communes of Aizy and Jouy were separate and their population was counted separately. In 1954,[4] Aizy had 242 inhabitants and Jouy 140.

In 2010, the commune had 287 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities 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.
  2. ^ The term "Creute" means "quarry" in the local dialect.
