At a glance

Prices statistics provide economic indicators on price trends and on the level of prices of goods and services in the Swiss economy.

These indicators are used to compensate for inflation (in contracts, wages, alimony payments, rents, etc.), for decision-making at economic, social and monetary levels as well as for macroeconomic analyses.

They also provide information for the general public on inflation in various sectors of the economy.
