Audits Data analyses second quarter 2021 in the area of the Confederation’s COVID-19 measures - Federal Chancellery

Please note: In each report you will find information on which period the data represent. This period is usually several months before the publication date. The reason for this is the time required for data acquisition and analysis; in addition, reports are only published after they have been dealt with by the Finance Delegation of the Federal Assembly. Between the analyses and the publication, the current status and the criteria for our analyses may have evolved considerably, depending on the COVID measure.
