DESI by components

2. DESI by components

Combine DESI index components with their corresponding breakdown by sub-components to explore the contribution of each indicator or group of indicators to the final ranking.

Compare the evolution of DESI components

3. Compare the evolution of DESI components

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. sub-dimensions of Connectivity). You can select only one country at a time.

DESI - Compare countries progress

4. DESI - Compare countries progress

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 DESI dimension or sub-dimension, selecting a group of countries and comparing with the European average trend.

DESI - Compare two indicators

5. DESI - Compare two indicators

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 clustering countries according to their similarities along the two selected indicators. It illustrate also how much they are correlated. You can zoom inside the chart.
