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.

Broadband communication networks and the services provided over them support a variety of economic and social development goals, relating to health, financial inclusion, and education, among many others. ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Database shows that fixed broadband subscriptions have increased by 89% worldwide within just seven years – from 532 million in 2010 to one billion in 2017. Switzerland has the highest fixed broadband penetration in the OECD, with almost one subscription for every two inhabitants, while the OECD average is just below one per three inhabitants.
