According to the U.S. Census there are 39,158 Swiss living in the country

We did some research to find out as much as we could about Swiss expats here in the U.S. and what we found out was fascinating.

It’s no surprise that New York City is home to the most amount of Swiss expats. However, Boston, is where you are most likely to run into a Swiss. Among all the places where they live, Boston has the highest concentration of Swiss expats relative to the city's population.

We also dug into the social media behavior of Swiss to see what the top interests are for those living in the U.S.

We found that the most popular Swiss celebrity is DJ Antoine, at only 280 likes. But he is no match for the tennis superstar Roger Federer with 3,600 likes, beating any other athlete, celebrity or brand. Making him the most followed among the Swiss in terms of social media.

Donald Trump takes in 1,200 likes, perhaps more for entertainment value than as anything else. While the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, falls behind with 600 likes.

Take a look below to see just what else we found!
