Les Angles-sur-Corrèze (Los Angles de Corresa in Occitan) is a French commune in the Corrèze department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of central France.

Geography[edit]

Les Angles-sur-Corrèze is located some 7 km north-west of Tulle and 30 km south-west of Égletons. It is traversed by the A89 autoroute from west to east through the heart of the commune but there is no exit in the commune. The nearest exits are Exit 20 to the west of the commune and Exit 21 to the east. Access to the commune is by road D58 which branches off the D23 south of the commune and continues north to the village and continues north then east to join the D1089 highway which forms the south-eastern border of the commune. There are large areas of forest in the commune with some areas of farmland near the village. Apart from the village there is the hamlet of Le Massoulier towards the east.[1]

The Corrèze river forms the northern and western borders of the commune as it flows south to join the Vézère west of Brive-la-Gaillarde. Many unnamed streams rise in the commune and flow into the Correze.[1]

Demography[edit]

In 2009 the commune had 104 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], 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.
