The Swiss Census 2010: Moving towards a comprehensive system of household and person statistics


By the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, 2008.

This paper provides a brief overview of the ongoing conception of the
Swiss Census 2010 and the setup of a new integrated system of household and
person statistics. The Swiss Census that was held (almost) every 10 years from 1850
until 2000 will be modernized. It will be based on an annual register survey, an
annual structural survey of a large sample and five topic-based sample surveys
alternating every year and a small annual omnibus survey. The process design will
be organized along the EDIMBUS process model.
