2009 Census Results...

I found this site regarding, population etc in Switzerland.

Its only in German and French but provides some very interesting details, such as "Auslanders" etc in each canton (i.e Basel Stadt has 59,000 of us!)


It is worth a look if you have a few spare hours!

Interesting with all this SVP stuff that 22% of Switzerland in 2009 was made of of Auslanders! :-)

You can do it online and in English.

But this system is about to become Swiss history. Starting on December 31, 2010, the Statistics Office will conduct its federal census in a new way. Rather than just once per decade, it will be annual.

It may sound like more work, but in fact, the new method is expected to save time and money, according to Statistics Office Director Jürg Marti. It will also cover a broader range of topics.
Who counts?

Only a small proportion of the population (about five per cent) will be questioned, either in writing or by telephone. To ease the burden on the population, most of the information will be drawn from municipal records and supplemented by sample surveys.

Each year, about 200,000 people will be chosen at random to complete a questionnaire providing further information on family, housing, employment, education, language and religion.
