Data sets and indicators used or produced and progressively published by DG Connect.

1. The Digital Agenda Data Tool

European Commission services selected around hundred indicators, divided into thematic groups, that illustrate key dimensions of the European information society. These indicators allow a comparison of progress across countries as well as over time. You can query and visualise data using The Visualisation Tools (here you can also download selected information in CSV-XLS). You can also download the whole database in CSV, TSV, HTML and RDF-N3/Turtle.

2. Eurostat ICT community surveys

Eurostat organizes two annual community surveys for the collection of data on the information society. Framework Regulation (EC) no. 808/2004 ensures that the data are harmonised. The regulation contains two modules, covering:

  • Use of ICT and eCommerce by Enterprises
  • Use of ICT by Households and individuals

The complete Eurostat databases with the results from the surveys on the usage of information and communication technologies in enterprises and households/by individuals are available in MS-Access and EXCEL format, with the description of how to use them, including the questionnaires used since 2002.

3. Open Datasets

DG Connect promotes transparency and re-use of its documents, reports and datasets (EC Decision 2011/833/EU). The Open Datasets contain information from the Directorate's administrative activities (i.e. research grants, reports from Member States) and from contracted studies (i.e. raw data from surveys, inventories, statistics). They are easily accessible through:

4. Studies

The final reports from the procured studies are made public. The inventory of the completed studies is accessible either from website or from the EU bookshop. Check the most recent reports.
