What we offer

Topics

The official Swiss Statistics is organized around 21 main topics. Those for which English material is available are listed on the left.

Our offer in the English language is currently minimal. As more resources become available we hope to improve this situation. Until such time you are warmly invited to consult either the French or German versions of this Portal, both of which offer the whole breadth of our online information.

Switzerland has a reputation for being a rather expensive country. But how expensive is it really?

But surely, salaries make up for the high cost of living?

Good question. See for yourself.
