Demographics[edit]

Inhabitants of Torcy are called Torcéens.

The suburbanization and affluence of the Vietnamese population in France has resulted in a demographic shift in Torcy since the 1980s. Vietnamese businesses and community organizations have been established in Torcy, and the commune, along with nearby Ivry-sur-Seine, contain one of the highest concentrations of Vietnamese people in France at 10% to 20% of the population.[1]
