Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions 2030 Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade
When selecting targets, the Commission looked at existing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), having in mind that targets need to be measurable in order to be monitored. For each target we present the baseline and source of data. The choice of lead KPIs hereafter was made based partly on existing KPIs which are monitored e.g. in the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) monitoring system set up by the Commission since 2014. There are, however, also potential KPIs where studies (ongoing or future) or other sources would be needed, methodologies would still need to be developed or relevant data would still need to be acquired. Moreover, it is to be recalled that even if a particular KPI is not mentioned in the below list of lead KPIs, this does not mean it is not monitored. Many other KPIs will continue to be monitored and reported via an enhanced DESI.
