Re: Market Research Switzerland

I started my research in Canada with a website in containing demographic info - average ages, incomes, etc for the areas I was interested in. Does anyone know of a website for this here?

Re: Market Research Switzerland

The link to the Union of Swiss Marketing- and Social Research might point you in the right direction http://www.vsms.ch They surely provide you with a list of member institutes and/or freelancers.

I'm not sure whether I understood correctly what you are looking for. This website might be indispensable nevertheless, but you've probably come across it already. (Swiss Federal Statistic Office):

http://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/portal/e...visite/04.html

(some of their publications however are only in German or French; some data is for free-some not (or only for academics). Switzerland has quite extensive databases.)



And here is a brief overview of Swiss Statistics which is for free and could be of interest for others on the forum, too.
