Www.ecensus.swiss 2020: In March 1850, under Federal Counsellor Stefano Franscini, the first federal population census was conducted in Switzerland. In addition to counting the population, interviewees were asked about their sex, age, marital status, occupation and religion. In December, a census was held every 10 years between 1860 and 2000. The only exceptions were the 1888 population census (built as a basis for the adjustment of the boundaries of the electoral district) and the 1941 population census (delayed due to the mobilisation of the army in May 1940). The 2000 census used conventional methods for the last time.
