Project description

The SIBIS project had the objectives to:

  • provide a conceptual and methodological framework for mapping and benchmarking Information Society developments;
  • take stock of existing statistical concepts and data sources in this field and check their suitability to meet user requirements;
  • pilot new statistical indicators which take account of the rapidly changing nature of e-Europe;
  • provide selected data not only on the majority of EU Member States and in the Acceding and Candidate Countries but as far as possible also on the USA and Switzerland as a benchmarking reference point;
  • contribute to the development of policy in the area.
