Population history[edit]

The population grew until the 1950s except for between the censuses of 1901 and 1911, the commune was to be rocked by emigration as the population fell over half since the 1950s census. Emigration was very large between the 1950s and the 1970s. Due to the racial tensions and subsequent battles, the city was the inspiration for the song "Albi, The Racist Dragon" by folk duo Flight of the Conchords. This may be a reference to the City of Albi much further north in Europe; in regards to the Albigensian Crusade?
