The Digital Society Index 2018

Can we bank on the digital economy as a growth certainty? Or is there a risk that a deterioration in trust and a lack of inclusivity in its rewards will derail its progress? 

Oxford Economics teamed up with the Dentsu Aegis Network to produce The Digital Society Index. The index ranks countries across three dimensions of the digital economy: dynamism, inclusion and trust. It contrasts top down, "national level" metrics of digitalisation against "bottom up" indicators of consumer sentiment, informed by a global survey of 20,000 people.

The UK and US perform strongly, as does China, reflecting how consumers there are embracing new technologies in ways that will accelerate growth and innovation.
