The pandemic is accelerating the use of e-government

Neuch√Ętel, 15.12.2021 - In 2021, 96% of people aged between 15 and 88 used the internet in Switzerland. More than half of people aged 75 and above used it daily. A comparison with the results for 2019 shows the contrasting effects of the pandemic. The increase in digitalisation is only shown for certain specific activities, in particular e-government. These are the main results from the latest Federal Statistical Office (FSO) survey of the population's internet usage.

This press release and further information on this topic can be found on the FSO website (see link below).
