Measuring the Digital Transformation

A Roadmap for the Future

image of Measuring the Digital Transformation

Measuring the Digital Transformation: A Roadmap for the Future provides new insights into the state of the digital transformation by mapping indicators across a range of areas – from education and innovation, to trade and economic and social outcomes – against current digital policy issues, as presented in Going Digital: Shaping Policies, Improving Lives. In so doing, it identifies gaps in the current measurement framework, assesses progress made towards filling these gaps and sets-out a forward-looking measurement roadmap. The goal is to expand the evidence base, as a means to lay the ground for more robust policies for growth and well-being in the digital era.

Education and training

Certain skills and qualifications, such as those related to science, engineering and ICTs are especially useful for thriving in the context of the digital transformation. In 2016, out of all tertiary graduates in OECD countries, 6% did so with degrees in natural sciences, mathematics and statistics; 14% in engineering, manufacturing and construction; and nearly 4% in ICT fields. It should be noted, though, that modern degree programmes in other fields can also endow students with relevant ICT skills. For example, graduates in the arts, graphic design, journalism and information, 6% of all tertiary graduates in OECD countries, are increasingly involved in activities related to production and management of digital content.
