Ambiegna is a commune in the Corse-du-Sud department of France on the island of Corsica.

Geography[edit]

Ambiegna is located some 25 km in a direct line north of Ajaccio and 5 km east of Sagone. It can be accessed by the D25 road from Casaglione in the south or by the D1 road from Solane in the south-west both going to the village on the eastern side of the commune. The D1 road continues north to Le Truggia by a tortuous route. The commune is remote and rugged with dense forests.[2]

The north-western border of the commune entirely consists of a large river flowing to the west.[2]

Demography[edit]

In 2009 the commune had 59 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through 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 [1] Archived 2016-03-06 at the Wayback Machine, 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 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.
