Which European countries have the most digital skills?
Do you know how to read online news sites, send an instant message, use word processing software or manage access to your personal data?
These are some of the basic digital skills that the European Union has been measuring across its 27 member countries.
Of people aged between 16 and 74 in the EU in 2021, more than half (54%) have “at least basic overall digital skills,” says Eurostat, the statistical office of the EU.
This means they know how to do at least one activity related to each of the following five areas: information and data literacy skills, communication and collaboration skills, digital content creation skills, safety skills, and problem-solving skills.
