German speaking people love statistics. With 63.7% of the Swiss population speaking German, there is always a flurry of numbers to be read in newspapers, heard on the radio or seen on television.
A few common numbers are: 7'866'500 (the population of Switzerland as of 2010), 4 (the number of official languages), 26 (the number of cantons), and 5 (the number of countries that border Switzerland).
I thought it would be interesting to post a few lesser known numbers, so here are 10 more interesting Swiss statistics.
What's your take on these statistics? Surprised? Not surprised at all?
