Statistics on Swiss Towns 2021

Three-quarters of Switzerland’s population live in urban areas. City dwellers occupy around 2 million homes in just under 540 000 urban buildings. Almost three-quarters of dwellings are occupied by tenants, the majority of whom live in three-room apartments. These are findings from the ‘Statistics on Swiss Towns 2021’, focusing on the topic ‘Living in the city’. The Swiss Union of Cities and Towns publishes the yearbook together with the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
