Swiss Earnings Structure Survey

The Swiss Earnings Structure Survey (ESS) is a written survey, carried out every two years in enterprises in Switzerland. It allows a regular description to be made of the earn-ings structure in all economic activities of the secondary and tertiary sectors based on representative data. It not only enquires after the economic activity and the size of the en-terprise concerned, but also the individual characteristics of employees and their jobs.
