Swiss Health Survey 2017: overweight and obesity
Between 1992 and 2017, the percentage of obese people in Switzerland doubled from 5% to 11%. A further 31% of the population were overweight in 2017. In the past few years, however, these percentages have stabilised, remaining at roughly the same level. Age, sex and education play a significant role in overweight and obesity.
