Company survey of the city of Zurich 2021

The city of Zurich has published the data we collected with companies and self-employed persons in the city of Zurich.

Since 2005, the City of Zurich's company survey has been an important tool for finding out how companies and the self-employed view Zurich as a business location, as well as their concerns and needs. In the summer of 2021, DemoSCOPE was allowed to conduct the company survey for the fifth time already. The results are based on the responses of 1,436 companies. The data analyses show that the overall satisfaction of the companies surveyed with Zurich as a business location and their assessment of future prospects are pleasingly positive despite the coronavirus pandemic. Further results can be found in the published study report 2021.

Covid-19 footprint in the household budget should not be overlooked

The Swiss Federal Statistical Office has published the data we collected on the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on household budgets.

The Covid 19 pandemic has left a significant mark on the household budget through the prescribed restrictions on daily life and the economy. In the household budget, expenditure in the hospitality sector, meals in restaurants, cafés and bars, consumption of food and non-alcoholic beverages, and entertainment, recreation and culture are compared with those of the respective quarters of previous years.

COVID-19 prevention: level of information, attitudes and behaviour

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has conducted a periodic impact measurement on the level of information, attitudes and behaviour of the population.

By periodically repeating the survey, changes and trends over the course of the pandemic can be recorded. In this way, the FOPH aims to check the acceptance and effectiveness of the COVID-19 prevention work. The present results of the eighth survey, as well as all previous surveys, are based on online surveys that represent the population of Switzerland with Internet access. For this report, the most important survey results of the most recent survey from June 2021 as well as time comparisons were processed. Key results of the survey can be found in the study report, which can be accessed via the following link.

Who would change their electricity supplier if they could?

Since the beginning of 2009, companies with an annual electricity consumption of more than 100,000 kWh have been able to freely choose their electricity supplier regardless of their location. In a few years, the liberalisation of the electricity market will become a fact. Even households and small businesses will then be able to freely choose their electricity supplier.

The liberalisation of the electricity market is supposed to bring all customers better service and new products or services through free competition. But does the population even know about this liberalisation? Would they even change their electricity supplier if they could? DemoSCOPE asked and gained some exciting insights:
