(Not all data is known)
Arnos is part of four inter-communal structures:
- the Community of communes of Lacq;
- the Water and sanitation association of Trois Cantons ;
- the Energy association of Pyrénées-Atlantiques ;
- the inter-communal association of Arthez-de-Béarn.
In 2009, the commune had 68 inhabitants; 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 and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , 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.
