A Roadmap for the Future

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.

Downsides to the digital transformation

In addition to creating a range of opportunities, the digital transformation introduces various new risks and downsides that can affect peoples’ lives and well-being. These risks occur in each dimension of the OECD Framework for Measuring Well-being and Progress (http://www.oecd.org/statistics/measuring-well-being-and-progress.htm), and are often difficult to measure. Since well-being is inherently a multidimensional concept, this section cannot do justice to the wide variety of risks posed or the nuances associated with them. Instead, it highlights a few key risks for which data are available in the areas of work-life balance, governance and social connections, each of which have gathered significant attention in the public debate.
