Abstract
Little is known in Switzerland regarding the profile of the adult population living with Asperger's Syndrome. This
is why we conducted a descriptive study on a population in French-speaking Switzerland (n=91) having received an
Asperger's diagnosis as an adult and who were treated in a department of Psychiatry of Mental Development. The
results of this study show that 68.5% of the men and 70.2% of the women are single. There were more married men
(22.2%) than women (8.1%), however there were more divorced women (21.6%) than men (9.2%). We report that
more men (37%) than women (18.9%) completed their mandatory schooling and more women (62.2%) than men
(44.4%) completed post-mandatory schooling (apprenticeship or cantonal aptitude degree). In terms of those with a
university degree, there was a parity between men and women (18%). Half of our study sample was employed; the
other half received a disability income. The Global Assessment of Functioning scale is estimated to be on average
68.9 (±12.87). This scale was correlated with civil status, level of education completed as well as professional situation
