Amance is a French commune in the Aube department in the Grand Est region of north-central France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Amançois or Amançoises[1]

Geography[edit]

Amance is located some 30 km east of Troyes and 10 km south of Brienne-le-Chateau. It can be accessed from Brienne-le-Chateau and Dienville in the north by road D443 which runs south to the village then through the heart of the commune south to Vendeuvre-sur-Barse. The road D112 also goes south-east to Vauchonvilliers and the D18 road goes east to Jessains.

The commune consists of farmland in the east but is heavily forested in the west to about 50% of its area. Apart from the village there is also the hamlet of La Ville aux Bois south-west of the village.

The Amance River runs through the village to the north into the Canal d'Amenee and forms part of the western boundary of the commune. A few small streams flow into it.[2]

History[edit]

In 1825 Amance absorbed La Ville-aux-Bois-lès-Vendeuvre which should not be confused with La Ville-aux-Bois commune also in the Aube.

Demography[edit]

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 275 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 communes 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 Archived 6 March 2016 at the Wayback Machine., 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 on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
