This indicator highlights the host society’s ability to receive and include the population groups perceived as different from a cultural or national point of view. These abilities are important because they facilitate contact between the majority group and the minority groups.
These abilities are measured from two different aspects. The first shows the majority population’s openness towards diversity in everyday life. The second shows the percentage of people who are of the opinion that the diversity of national and cultural origins is an enrichment for the culture of Switzerland.
