Religions

Over the past 40 years, Switzerland's religious landscape has seen a fair amount of change: although the proportion of Roman Catholics has remained relatively stable, that of Reformed Protestants has declined severely, in favour of persons with no religious affiliation

Between 2010 and 2018, the proportion of Roman Catholics and Reformed Protestants fell slightly (by 3 and 5 percentage points respectively), in contrast to that of Muslims and other Islamic communities (+1 point). The proportion of Jewish communities has hardly changed whereas that of persons without religious affiliation has risen by 8 percentage points.
