The main regions with the highest population growth are the Lake Geneva region, Greater Zurich, parts of central Switzerland, and the region in and around Basel-City. The success of these regions has pushed people into more affordable (less insanely expensive?) parts of the country.

Those gaining the most new residents from other cantons were Aargau (+22,694), Fribourg (+14,586), Valais (+10,420), Thurgau (+8,030), Basel-Landschaft (+7,541), Solothurn (+5 689) and Bern (+3,924).
