Promotion économique de la République et Canton du Jura

Cost of living

The high standard of living in Switzerland is reflected in high costs; however purchasing power is also high by international comparison. The canton of Jura has a freely disposable income that is particularly attractive compared to other regions of Switzerland* (see below).

*Freely disposable income is calculated by deducting from the gross income of a household the compulsory charges and fixed costs (rent or owned property, accessory costs, taxes on water, waste water and refuse, as well as electricity and energy expenses).
