Swiss Research on Fiscal Federalism

Data Download

Several data sets constructed within this Sinergia project are now available for download. Here you can find information about the ongoing data collection.

Local public finances:

Here you can download data on the public finances of cantons and a sample of municipalities for the period 1970-1989. These are digitised versions of tables published by the Swiss Federal Finance Administration (series “Öffentliche Finanzen der Schweiz”).

Personal income at cantonal and municipal level:

Data on taxable personal income for the period 1973-2012 have been compiled within this Sinergia project and are now accessible on the Swiss Federal Tax Administration’s own website. These data include number of taxpayers, total taxable income, median taxable income, equivalent incomes, Gini indices and taxable incomes by income quantiles.
