Brief Description

With the support of the Federal Office for Gender Equality, the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) published in 2018 an overview of statistics on homicides (including attempts) recorded by the police in Switzerland between 2009 and 2016. The figures are divided into two categories: 'homicides committed in the domestic sphere' and 'homicides committed outside the domestic sphere'. The data focus on the characteristics of the persons involved and are disaggregated according to the type of relationship between the victim and the perpetrator.
