(a) Two criteria have been used to determine the relative affluence of the sections of Lyon at the time of the Revolution: (1) the percentage of éligibles according to the table in AD 1L332–5, Élections 1790–1; (2) the percentage of the population given assistance by the Société Philanthropique in 1789 (from J.-P. Gutton, La Société et les pauvres: Lʼexemple de la généralité de Lyon 1534–1789 (Paris, 1970), 55). The only census giving population figures per section was completed in January 1794 (see C. Riffaterre, Le Mouvement anti-jacobin et anti-parisien à Lyon et dans le Rhone-et-Loire en 1793 (Lyon, 1912–28), i. 105). In view of the lapse of time between the various sets of figures used, this ranking should be regarded as a rough guide only.

The sections have been grouped in ascending order of affluence. Those in italics appear twice under A and/or B or C and/or D, and so can be classified as ‘poor’ or ‘wealthy’ with some confidence.
