The Historical Statistics of Switzerland Online maintains a collection of statistical data on the economic, social, political and cultural development of Switzerland in modern times. The figures are derived from publications of the official statistics of the confederation and the cantons, or, more rarely, from monographs, publications by associations and trade journals. Some of the data stems from research projects and sometimes the data was supplemented through estimating.

Thematically, the collection covers a wide ranger of subjects, including time series on the population, diseases and causes of death, migration, the economy, work and its compensation, environmental pollution and many other topics.
