The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI)

The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) summarises indicators on Europe’s digital performance and tracks the progress of EU countries.

The DESI 2020 reports are based on 2019 data. The United Kingdom is still included in the 2020 DESI, and EU averages are calculated for 28 Member States. The DESI was re-calculated for previous years to reflect the changes in the choice of indicators and corrections made to the underlying data. The scores and rankings may thus have changed compared with previous editions. 

International DESI 2020

The International Digital Economy and Society Index (I-DESI) mirrors and extends the DESI by utilising 24 datasets to enable trend analysis and comparison of the digital performance of 45 countries. The analysis includes the EU27 Member States and 18 non-EU countries that have a global distribution.
