Bulletin from the SSS: article from the FSO on revisions to the territorial typologies and analysis regions

For many years, the Federal Statistical Office has published the perimeters of different analysis regions and several territorial typologies. This geographical information is useful not only for the cartographic representation of statistical data, but also for spatial analyses. In addition to the institutional geographical levels (communes, cantons, countries) for which data are generally available, the FSO provides other perimeters or characterisations that broaden the range of possibilities for users. In order to keep up with changes in society and the territory, these analytical tools must be periodically reviewed, both in terms of updating data and updating the methods used.
