The dry season runs from November to March with minimum rainfall in December and January. The average annual rainfall measures 1,500 millimeters.
The soil in the Marmont region is mostly superficial and of clayish texture. It is constantly threatened by erosion because of the steep slopes present in some areas (Josemarie, Garde Marmont) and weak top soil particularly in Savanne-Plate, Doco and Lamesette. The humus cover is very thin and of insignificant permeability.
According to the latest matrimonial indicators, 80% of the inhabitants of the area live in cohabitation, and only 20% are married. Women head fifty five percent (55%) of the household.
The three main religions practiced in Marmont are: Protestant 60%, Catholic 35%, and Vodun 5%. There are five Protestant and one Catholic Church in the area.
The main cultural event of the area is the catholic feast that celebrates the patron saint of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul during the month of June. Catholiques, Protestants and Vodun faithfuls take part in the celebration.
