One in ten moved in Switzerland in 2021

Neuch√Ętel, 18.11.2022 - In the course of 2021, just over 10% of the Swiss population moved. Young adults were most likely to change dwellings. Occupants of single-family houses moved less often than occupants of multi-dwelling housing. The average moving distance was 13 km. These are some of the results from the moving statistics compiled by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
