Denmark has displaced Sweden as the top ranking nation in IDC's influential Information Society Index (ISI) which ranks 53 countries' ability to access and use IT

Denmark has displaced Sweden as the top ranking nation in IDC's influential Information Society Index (ISI), which is published annually and measures the abilities of 53 nations to participate in the information revolution. After four years as No.1, Sweden drops to No.2, followed by the US, Switzerland and Canada. Denmark's rise has been relentless over the last 3 years, moving steadily up from 5th place in 2002 and 2nd spot in 2003 to take pole position this year.

 

The ISI combines 15 variables in four infrastructure categories to calculate and rank each nation’s ability to access and utilize information and information technology. The four categories are: computers, internet, telecoms and social.

 

Denmark received high scores in a number of variables across all four categories. Based on 2003 data, 67% of the population in Denmark is accessing the Internet with 84% of those users connecting from home. 22% of the households are using broadband connections while total mobile subscriber penetration in Denmark reached 59%. The news is reported in a press release from IDC.
