The report, compiled by Switzerland’s Federal Statistical Office, found that immigrants to Switzerland had a higher level of trust in the state and state entities like the police.
While only 41 percent of Swiss trust the political system, 53 percent of immigrants say they have trust in politics.
Both Swiss locals and immigrants have a higher level of trust in police than they do in the political system, although immigrants still had more trust for police.
In total, 65 percent of locals said they trust the police, compared with 70 percent of foreigners or immigrants.
Broad agreement on equal opportunity
Immigrants and locals largely agree on the need to ensure equal opportunities for everyone in Switzerland regardless of their backgrounds.
Three-quarters of immigrants (75 percent) and 68 percent of locals said everyone in the country should have the same access to opportunities.
Locals vote more frequently
Switzerland, with its regular referenda and representative elections, is known for going to the polls frequently.
This seems to be better understood among locals, of whom 67 percent participate in elections regularly.
Among foreigners eligible to vote, 60 percent vote regularly.
