Digital inclusion - Employment and social inclusion indicators

Digital inclusion

The annual EU surveys on ICT usage in households and by individuals are a major source of information for monitoring efforts to promote a single European information space, an inclusive knowledge-based society and quality of life. Active use of ICT (information and communication technology) can mean better prospects for work, information and social relations.

The Digital Agenda for Europe, one element of the Europe 2020 growth strategy, is the successor to the i2010 policy framework promoting a European Information Society for growth and employment.

The statistical data collected from 2011 onwards build on previous data collections and are largely determined by the Digital Agenda for Europe and the framework for Monitoring the Digital Economy and Society 2016-2021.
