Regional and cantonal GDP are published yearly at the end of October for the year t-2 (e.g. publication of 2014 data in October 2016).

Due to data availability, the series starts in 2008. The FSO does not intend to carry out an estimate or a retrospective extrapolation of years prior to this date.
