How Digital Is Your Country?


EC LOGOThe European Commission has released a new 'Digital Economy and Society Index' (DESI). DESI is an index that summarises different indicators on Europe’s digital performance and tracks the evolution of EU member states. The main dimensions taken into account include the deployment of broadband infrastructure, digital skills, use of internet, and digitisation of businesses and public services.

The online version allows users to experiment with each indicator and see how it impacts overall rankings.
