Sweden number one in Web Index


What is the Web Index?

Designed and produced by the World Wide Web Foundation, the Web Index is the world’s first multi-dimensional measure of the Web’s growth, utility and impact on people and nations. It covers 61 developed and developing countries, incorporating indicators that assess the political, economic and social impact of the Web, as well as indicators of Web connectivity and infrastructure.

Index Report and Key Findings

Sweden is best in the world at putting the Web to work, beating the US and UK for the top spot. However, the Web remains a largely untapped resource in much of the world, the study shows, with only 1 in 3 people using it globally and fewer than 1 in 6 in Africa.

This report highlights some of the 2012 Web Index’s key findings and spotlights several surprise outcomes across the globe. It also provides an overview of the Web Index’s design, structure, and methodology.
