Oct 26, 2018 | News

(26 October 2018) – The European Commission is publishing today the International Digital Economy and Society Index (I-DESI) comparing the digital performance of EU Member States with those of 17 non-EU countries.


Digital performance has been compared in 5 areas: connectivity, human capital and digital skills, use of internet by citizens integration of technology and digital public services.

Denmark tops the ranking, followed by the Republic of Korea and Finland. Four other EU Member States are in the ‘top ten’ of the index: the Netherlands, the UK, Sweden and Luxembourg.

I-DESI uses a similar methodology to the EU Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), which every year compares the performance of Member States.
