Economic situation

We analyze and report the short term economic developments in Switzerland. Our work is quantitative (establishing the development of the quarterly gross domestic product GDP) as well as qualitative (See publication «Konjunkturtendenzen» in German). On the basis of internationally harmonized methods, we are responsible for the first official estimation of the current Swiss economic development (quarterly estimation of the GDP). Further, in the context of the federal group of expertise for business cycle forecasting we are substantially involved in the Swiss GDP-forecast and we are responsible for communicating the results. In addition, we comment four times a year on the survey of consumer sentiment.
