Integral forms of the virial theorem in the density functional theory are derived. A relationship between the orbital energy sum and the integral of the pressure is studied. A new form of the regional virial theorem and the regional analogue of the Levy-Perdew relation are obtained. Local density approximation to the regional virial theorem is presented.
