The inhabitants of the commune are known as Alaignois or Alaignoises'
The commune is located some 10 kms north-west of Limoux and 20 kms east of Mirepoix. A number of district roads all converge on the village of Alaigne: the D102 south from Belveze-du-Razes, the D702 west from Routier, the D102 noth-west from Limoux, and the D52 which comes east from Bellegarde-du-Razes then continues south to Villelongue-d'Aude.
The commune is mostly farmland with a few scattered forests. There are no villages or hamlets other than Alaigne.
This is the arms of the last Archbishop of Narbonne, Arthur Richard Dillon.

(Not all data is known)
In 2010, the commune had 340 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] [Note 2]
From 1962 to 1999 there was no double counting of people who stayed in multiple communes.

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , 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.
- In the census table and the graph, by convention in Wikipedia, and to allow a fair comparison between five yearly censuses, the principle has been retained for subsequent legal populations since 1999 displayed in the census table and the graph that shows populations for the years 2006, 2011, 2016, etc.. , as well as the latest legal population published by INSEE
