More information

 

Results can be broken down to major region level on the basis of the Job Statistics (BESTA).

The cantons of Geneva, Neuch√Ętel, St. Gallen, Vaud, as well as the cities of Zurich and Winterthur, have been financing additional samples for several years, which allows them to obtain quarterly results at the cantonal or municipal level. You will obtain these results directly from the authorities concerned.
