All this is provided by a newly designed application on Statistic Switzerland’s portal.




And download all countries as a brochure


Open Data

The Source Data (from Eurostat and Swiss Statistics) are available as an EXCEL file: So data are open and the app made from these data is open, too. It provides selecting and embedding and also the output of all indicators as a PDF file. It may also be embedded into third party websites or other apps can be written by other people.


App made with a CMS

This Portrait-App is one of several Apps of the same flavour. There are also portraits of the 26 Swiss Cantons, the biggest Cities and and the (more than)  2500 Communes.


A Content Management System helps building these Portrait-Apps once the data are in correct shape. And this in a very short time (hours).
