Thursday, 15 September 2022 | According to the fourth annual edition of the Digital Quality of Life Index, Israel has now placed first, beating out 116 other nations and overtaking Denmark after two years in the top spot.
Five “fundamental well-being pillars”—e-government, e-infrastructure, Internet quality, Internet affordability and e-security—were considered when compiling the report.
The United States is now ranked 12th out of 117, down from fifth last year. Most of the remaining top 10 come from Europe, though Asian powerhouses South Korea (10th) and Japan (eighth) are also there.
The affordability pillar gives Israel an advantage over everyone else due to its high affordability index.
Israel’s Internet quality—as seen by speed, stability and growth—ranks 21st globally and is considered 31% better than the norm. Of the five pillars, e-government is where Israel performs the lowest, ranking 33rd. E-infrastructure is ranked 28th and e-security 32nd.
