Population growth Where Switzerland is growing the most

Between 1981 and 2015, Switzerland’s population grew by around a third to 8.3 million. This map shows how the growth was distributed unequally. The demographic increase was above average between Lake Geneva and Lake Neuchâtel in the French-speaking part of the country, in Italian-speaking Ticino in the south and in the flat areas in the east. Growth was below average, on the other hand, in large parts of canton Bern and Jura.
