Abstract This article focuses on changes in economic, cultural, and social capital (as measured by income, educational attainment, and membership in associations), and their association with social stratification in Switzerland in the 1990s. Data were provided by an inequality study from 1991 and the 1999 ISSP on social inequality. The first section deals with social inequality across time and gender. In the second section, changes in the structure of these indicators are examined. Notable exceptions to the stability in the inequality structure are the increase in under- and unemployment, a decrease in low-pay full-time employment, and a moderate increase in women’s educational attainment. Nevertheless, despite the economic crisis in the 1990s, little significant change has taken place in the social and opportunity structure in Switzerland.
