Abstract From the first results of the French 1999 census we can see that the existing regional trends in the development of the population in France are continuing in weakened form. While the north and north-east with their high birth rates, as an older industrial region, continue to be migration areas, the south is gaining as a result of population moving in. Another thing that is taking on the form of a continuous development is the growth of some regional centres such as Nice, Montpelier and Toulouse. The traditional imbalance between Paris and the "province" seems to be diminishing as a result of the region of Paris (Ile-de-France) losing quantitative amounts of population. In spite of this, we should still be cautious about interpreting the data with reference to the possibility of decentralisation or a loss of importance in the region of the capital. The intertwining area of Paris has continued to extend itself into the bassin Parisien (the Parisian basin) in the last decade, i.e. the bordering region. However, in order to completely assess the data from the census, we will have to wait for the evaluation of census data that is planned for spring of 2001.
