The Inclusive Internet Index 2018

The Inclusive Internet Index, commissioned by Facebook and conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit, returns for its second year.

Expanded to cover 86 countries, up from 75 in 2017, the index provides a rigorous benchmark of national-level Internet inclusion across four categories: Availability, Affordability, Relevance and Readiness.

This year’s index, which covers 91% of the world’s population, is published alongside a new global Value of the Internet Survey, which polled 4,267 respondents from 85 countries, from Singapore and Switzerland to Cambodia and Ethiopia, to gauge perceptions on how Internet use affects people’s lives.

This executive summary presents the index and survey highlights.
