The report includes two special chapters: “The economic impact of migration: Why the local level matters” and "International migration following environmental and geopolitical shocks: How can OECD countries respond?", as well as country notes and a statistical annex.

Hide / Show Abstract

In 2015, almost 150 500 long-stay foreigners immigrated to Switzerland, or 1.1% less than in 2014, continuing a trend begun the previous year. Nationals of EU and EFTA countries made up almost three quarters of the total. The two biggest groups were Germans and Italians, accounting for 15% and 12% of the total respectively, followed by nationals of France (up sharply) and Portugal – 10% and 8%. While 63% of immigrants from the EU and EFTA went to Switzerland for professional reasons, nationals of countries outside these blocs generally immigrated to join their families (47% of inflow).
