This part of the website presents a set of indicators, the so-called TRANSFORM benchmarking indicators, the purpose of which is to allow better benchmarking of transformative uses of ICT in EU regions.
The set of indicators presented here uses statistical measures, as much as possible, of existing indicators and benchmarking frameworks, as regions when setting up Information Society observatories should seek for compatibility with Eurostat, OECD and other established indicator systems. This will enable them to compare their own data with existing data from other sources.
In some cases, new indicators have been suggested and subsequently piloted within the context of the TRANSFORM Regional Internet User Survey. The suggested indicators are presented individually. Descriptions can be accessed by clicking on the Indicator name in the list below.
