Statistical Yearbook of Switzerland published for 125th time
The latest 2018 edition of the Statistical Yearbook of Switzerland marks a special anniversary: its publication for the 125th time. No other publication from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) enjoys such a long tradition nor such importance to users from all walks of life. In addition to the typical presentation of facts on our society, economy, territory and environment, the FSO has added a special supplement to this year’s edition in celebration of the yearbook’s history.
An anniversary offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on history, the current constitution and of course the future - and the same applies no less to the Statistical Yearbook of Switzerland.
The monitoring of 2030 Agenda in Switzerland expresses contrasting and somewhat contradictory trends with regard to the goals pursued. Thirty nine indicators show a development in line with expectations, fourteen show a reverse trend while twelve do not show any marked change. These are the findings of the monitoring system published for the first time by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
The Swiss consumer price index (CPI) remained stable in June 2018 compared with the previous month, reaching 102.1 points (December 2015=100). Inflation was 1.1% compared with the same month of the previous year.
