Balance between the under 20s and the over 60s



With 303,000 inhabitants (at 1st January 2009), over a total surface area of 6,103km2, Orne is Normandy's most sparsely populated department.
The Orne population represents 20% of the total regional population. The decreasing demographic trend observed in previous years would appear to have stabilised, thanks to efforts to open up the department's rural areas and to the creation of communication infrastructures.

RURAL POPULATION

The rural population continues to dominate with 55.09% of the total departmental population scattered throughout 474 « rural » communes. Rural population density throughout these towns and villages is 28 inhabitants per km2, whereas urban population density reaches only 301 inhabitants per km2. Such low population density is characteristic of the Orne department's predominantly rural nature with a few small to medium-sized urban communities.
The urban population is concentrated within the urban community of Alençon (19 communes): 51,942 inhabitants; the Pays de Flers urban community (13 communes): 29,371 inhabitants; the Pays d'Argentan urban community (11 communes): 19,103 inhabitants

AGE PYRAMID IN 2006

FOREIGN POPULATION

6,503 foreigners lived in the department in 1999, including:
- European Union: 30%
