Historical time series


In 2007, the Swiss National Bank was celebrating its centenary. It was marking this event by launching a new publication series featuring historical statistical data. This publication includes topics of importance to monetary policy – both now and in the past. Wherever possible, the time series extend back over the past hundred years. The publications also include commentaries on the time series, describing the calculation methods as well as, for some topics, the historical and regulatory background. This helps readers understand and interpret the data, and provides the information required when relating different time series to one another.

The series of publications consists of five brochures.

  • Historical time series 5: Banks in Switzerland

    Historical time series 4: Interest rates and yields

    Historical time series 3: Swiss National Bank - Balance sheets and income statements

    Historical time series 2: Capital and stock markets

    Historical time series 1: The monetary base and the M1, M2 and M3 monetary aggregates
