Haute-Saône is a French department of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region named after the Saône River. Haute-Saône is divided into 17 cantons; the department was created in the early years of the French Revolution through the application of a law dated 22 December 1789, from part of the former province of Franche-Comté. The frontiers of the new department corresponded to those of the old Bailiwick of Amont. Haute-Saône is part of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Neighbouring departments are Côte-d'Or to the west, Haute-Marne to the north-west, Vosges to the north, Territoire de Belfort to the east, Doubs to the south and east and Jura to south; the department can be presented as a transitional territory positioned between several of the more depressed departments of eastern France and the so-called Blue Banana zone characterised, in recent decades by powerful economic growth. The department is overwhelmingly rural, despite the area having been at the forefront of industrialisation in the eighteenth century.

The industrial tradition endures. In 2006 employment by economic sector was reported as follows: * Agriculture 4,919 employees * Construction 4,504 employees * Industrial sector 18,747 employees * Service sector 44,865 employees In common with many rural departments in France, Haute-Saône has experienced a savage reduction in population, from nearly 350,000 in the middle of the nineteenth century to 200,000 on the eve of the Second World War, as people migrated to newly industrialising population centres outside Metropolitan France. During the second half of the twentieth century the mass mobility conferred by the surge in automobile ownership permitted some recovery of the population figure to 234,000 in 2004; the rural nature of the department is highlighted by the absence of large cities. The department's capital, still had a population below 20,000 in 2010.
