Lead Indicators for DG CONNECT policy priorities

This dataset complement the "digital agenda key indicators" dataset, presenting some additional indicators used to illustrate some important aspects of the results we are committed to achieve. They mainly refers to EU level initiatives and are not intended to benchmark Member States performance. For a presentation of DG CONNECT policy responsibilities consult our website.

See the evolution of an indicator and compare countries

1. See the evolution of an indicator and compare countries

To assess progress and estimate future developments it is essential to know where we come from. Time-line charts allow you to visualise this kind of trends for one indicator, possibly one specific breakdown, one country and to compare it with some others countries, as well as with the European average trend.

Bar chart to compare countries

2. Bar chart to compare countries

This bar-chart allows you to select one indicator, possibly one specific breakdown, and see which countries are leading the league. You can also check if the ranking of countries has changed over the last few years using the time animation bar. Countries are always ordered according to their score. You can also select or de-select countries in order to visualise only those you are interested in.

Compare the evolution of breakdowns

3. Compare the evolution of breakdowns

This time-lines chart allows you to select one indicator, and see its evolution over time for the different modalities of a breakdown group (i.e. households grouped into four income levels or individuals divided into three formal education levels). You can select only one country at a time.

Analyse one indicator and compare breakdowns

4. Analyse one indicator and compare breakdowns

This bar-chart allows you to select one indicator, one year, and see different breakdowns for selected countries. Countries are ordered by the value of the first breakdown in the indicator. You can also select or de-select countries in order to visualise only those you are interested in.

Analyse one indicator and compare by strategic objectives (SO)

5. Analyse one indicator and compare by strategic objectives (SO)

The so-called SO-Strategic Objectives reflect thematic domains used to aggregate research projects in the ICT domains, financed under the FP7-seventh framework program or in Horizon2020.

Maps by country

6. Maps by country

This chart allows you to select one indicator, one year, and compare countries on a map. Countries are coloured according to their score, so you can easily see, for example, the performance of the neighbours. Larger countries will be more visible than smaller, although surface do not correspondent exactly to the total population.

Compare two indicators (same time)

7. Compare two indicators (same time)

Scatter-plot is a kind of chart that compares two indicators, represented on the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) axis. Each country appears as a point whose coordinates are its values on the two selected indicators. It allows also clustering countries according to their similarities along the two selected indicators. You can zoom inside the chart.

Compare the evolution of two indicators (same ref. area)

8. Compare the evolution of two indicators (same ref. area)

The simultaneous visualization of two indicators on the time-line charts allows seeing if the two phenomena have been going up or down at the same periods. The slope should be interpreted with caution because the two curbs are usually expressed with different units. The two scales are on the left and right side of the chart
