|The European Commission has monitored Member States’ progress on digital and published annual
Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) reports since 2014. Each year, the reports include country
profiles, which help Member States identify areas for priority action, and thematic chapters
providing an EU-level analysis in the key digital policy areas.
In 2021, the Commission adjusted DESI to reflect the two major policy initiatives that will have an
impact on digital transformation in the EU over the coming years: the Recovery and Resilience
Facility and the Digital Decade Compass.
