Sweden leads the Digital Economy Ranking 2010, a list of the world’s 70 leading digital economies published by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and the Institute for Business Value (IBM). Denmark and the United States follow up in second and third place, respectively, while Spain moves up one position to 24th.
The ranking evaluates the quality of each country’s information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructures and the extent to which their use by consumers, businesses and governments contribute to national development. Countries are ranked in six main categories: connectivity and infrastructure; business environment; social and cultural settings; legal environment; public policy and initiatives, and the adoption of ICTs by consumers and companies.
