Open, freely accessible data (Open Government Data, OGD) from the Swiss authorities can be found on opendata.swiss. The portal is being operated and further developed as part of the Strategy for open administrative data in Switzerland, 2019-2023.

The Confederation, cantons, communes and other organisations with a state mandate (e.g. SBB) release their publishable data on opendata.swiss. Various data collections such as health insurance premiums, population statistics or current weather data can be obtained from this website and reused. All data are available subject to the standard terms of use.

Mandate

The participating organisations developed the opendata.swiss portal under the supervision of the Swiss Federal Archive until 2018. In 2019 the Federal Statistical Office took over responsibility for opendata.swiss to implement the new “Strategy for open administrative data in Switzerland, 2019-2023”. This is being further developed on an ongoing basis in tandem with stakeholders.

Get involved

All open administrative data from the Confederation, cantons and communes in Switzerland are referenced on opendata.swiss. Third parties – such as state-related enterprises, persons who perform tasks for the Confederation, cantons or communes – are also invited to publish where there is a public interest in this, even if these data are already referenced on other websites.
We look forward to hearing from you if you would like to disclose data from your organisation on opendata.swiss. You will already find some initial information on the publication of open government data at handbook.opendata.swiss.
