Arabaux is a French commune in the Ariège department in the Midi-Pyrénées region of southwestern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Arabausois or Arabausoises[1]

Geography[edit]

Arabaux is some 20 km south of Pamiers and 2 km north-east of Foix to which urban area it belongs. National Highway N20 passes through the south-western corner of the commune partly in a tunnel but it has no exit in the commune with the nearest exit No. 10 south of Saint-Jean-de-Verges. The D1 road goes from Foix through the south of the commune and continues east to Carla-de-Roquefort. Access to the village is by country roads - one from the NR20 Exit 10 and one from the D1 on the eastern border. The commune is heavily forested in the centre and west with the rest of the land farmland.[2]

The Alses river passes through the centre of the commune from east to west then turns north forming part of the western border to join the Ariège near the NR20 Exit 10. The Ruisseau d'Araboux rises west of the village and flows north-west to join the Ariege.[2]

Demography[edit]

In 2009 the commune had 63 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from 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, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes 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.
