Abstract An online survey of children in school grades 4-9 (mostly aged 10-15) was conducted in order to determine the prevalence of young carers in Switzerland using a 2‐stage stratified sampling approach. 4082 respondents were drawn from 230 schools. A total of 3991 respondents were included in the analysis and of these 307 (7.7%) were identified as young carers. The population estimate of prevalence was 7.9 per cent. This suggests that there are around 38 400 young carers in school grades 4-9 in Switzerland. Extrapolating to the 9-16 age group gives a figure of almost 51 500.
