It depends on both the type of Swiss cheese and the particular block it's cut from. What I buy called Alpine Lace seems to have hundreds of tiny holes in every slice - probably why they include "lace" in the name. Baby Swiss always seems to have fewer holes. For regular Swiss, I've had some like what's in your picture and some like I have now that only has a few holes in each slice.
I have no idea but I will grab some coffee and eat a few thousand samples to net an average
On my travels once I met a little man - or was it a woman with a curly 'tash and leather shorts? - who told me the formula (get a pencil and paper):
For every city in the canton = three large holes 1/2 inch diameter each;
For every town " " = three medium holes 1/4 dia. each;
Per village " " = four small holes 1/8 dia. each;
Per farm (10+ cows) " " = five smaller holes 1/16 dia. each;
Per farm (less cows) " " = five pin-holes 1/32 dia. each.
We made our farewells and he/she went off yodelling (translation of message in the yodel: "one more, one more).
Whaddya mean you don't believe it?!
Wow, I never thought about this, plus I don't like Swiss Cheese. However, if I going to take a guess and say fourteen? I am curious as to what the correct answer is.
That piece in the photo reminds me of a sponge. Did someone say Sponge Bob? I have never thought of it before but now you have me wondering just how many holes on average does it have? It's not my favorite cheese but I can eat it if it is the Amish brand because it is less bitter.
A piece of Swiss cheese is completely riddled with holes, and it's impossible to give an exact number of how many holes are in different pieces of Swiss cheese.

Why does Swiss cheese have holes? No other cheese does.Does it need to breath all of the time? Did it have multiple eyes?
