At a glance

Due to the Confederation’s stagnant fiscal yields, in 2016 the fiscal yield recorded only moderate growth (+1.4%) for the state as a whole. The fiscal quota compared with the previous year nonetheless fell slightly due to smaller growth of the nominal GDP (+0.9%). While the Confederation’s tax ratio fell marginally to 9.8%, there was an increase in the tax ratio for the cantons (7.0%) and communes (4.3%) of 0.2 and 0.1 percentage points. In contrast, the tax and contribution ratio of social insurance stagnated at 6.7% of the GDP.
