Either at work, at a restaurant, on public transport or in a shop, nearly half of Swiss admit to stealing, according to a survey by moneyland.ch 49% of the 1,500 questioned in the survey admitted to pocketing something without paying.

Young people admitted to being the most light fingered. Around a fifth of those aged 18-25 had taken something from the supermarket Migros (20%) or Coop (18%). The rates for all adults were lower: Migros (12%) and Coop (11%). 1% admitted to stealing regularly from these supermarkets.

Failing to pay for public transport was common too. 34% of all adults admitted to doing this at least once, a figure that rose to 48% among 18-25 year olds.

Reported rates of theft from work or colleagues (18%) and restaurants and hotels (13%) were high too. 16% of men and 11% of women admitted to purposefully leaving a restaurant without paying.

Rates were lower in clothing (6%) and electronics (5%) stores.

Women (46%) admitted to stealing less than men (52%) and French-speaking Swiss (47%) less than German-speaking Swiss (50%). And rural dwellers reported less stealing (45%) than their urban counterparts (51%).
