The Community Survey

The SwiSCI community survey is instrumental to the establishment of an epidemiological database for SCI that provides reliable data for the comprehensive study of functioning, disability and health. The survey data contribute to the evaluation of rehabilitation or policy interventions, and build an evidence-base to inform Swiss social and health policy with regards to SCI.

The survey is repeated at five-year intervals to obtain longitudinal and up-to-date descriptions of the SCI community in Switzerland. The first survey was conducted in 2012, the second in 2017, the third in 2022. The survey aims to include persons aged 16 or older, diagnosed with a traumatic or non-traumatic SCI, permanently residing in Switzerland.
