Cross-border City Statistics

In the scope of the project, data are not only collected at city level (core city level) but also at subcity level and at a larger urban zone level. Against this background, the influence of nearby French and German territory of City Statistic's cross-border cities Geneva and Basel can hardly be ignored. The statistical offices of Geneva (OCSTAT) and Basel-Stadt have thus decided together with the FSO to consider the entire urban area of Geneva and Basel both within and beyond the Swiss national border. Switzerland carried out a cross-border chapter of City Statistics together with France's National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), the German Statistical Office of Baden-Württemberg, and with Eurostat's approval.

The cross-border atlas of the cities is updated every year (in French or German)
