To establish a basis for policy decisions, the city of Kloten first started monitoring sociospatial developments back in 2015. As part of an effort to update the monitoring system, we examined the sociospatial changes that had occurred in the city with respect to the following factors: population; social structure; housing; real-estate market; and employment. We assessed the developments within the various city districts with the help of indicators and used our results as a basis for issuing planning recommendations.
