Arronnes (Occitan, Arona) is a French commune in the Allier department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of central France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Arronnais or Arronnaises.[1]

Geography[edit]

Arronnes is located some 18 kilometres (11 mi) south-east of Vichy and 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) west by south-west of Le Mayet-de-Montagne. Access to the commune is by the D995 road from Cusset in the north-west passing through the heart of the commune and the village and continuing south-east to Ferrières-sur-Sichon. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Les Fours, Doyat, Les Barlets, and Les Etangs in the south of the commune. There are substantial forests spread over the commune occupying about 60% of the land area with the balance farmland.[2]

The Sichon river flows from the south-east to the north-west of the commune joined by its tributary the Vareille at the village and continuing north-west to join the Allier in Vichy.[2]

Demography[edit]

In 2013 the commune had 372 inhabitants.[6] 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 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.
