image of OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2011

This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

Access to broadband

Households and individuals in many OECD countries are now accustomed to using broadband (high-speed) connections at home. At present, more than one household out of two has broadband Internet access in three-quarters of OECD countries. Korea has the largest share of households with a broadband connection via a computer or mobile phone (97%). In OECD countries the share ranges from 21% in Mexico to 97% in Korea, for an OECD average of approximately 62%.
