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.

Digitalisation and the diffusion of information and communication technologies (ICTs) have revolutionised the way in which firms and markets operate, with important differences in business dynamism between digital-intensive and other sectors of the economy. Higher levels of business dynamism are associated with higher productivity. Analysis based on the OECD DynEmp3 database shows that digital-intensive sectors are, on average, characterised by higher business dynamism, as indicated by higher job reallocation rates and a larger share of young firms (see Calvino and Criscuolo, 2019 for further discussion).
