SIBIS is a European-wide project which was funded within the IST Programme which is part of the 5th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The project duration was from January 2001 to September 2003 and its objective was the development and piloting of new and innovative statistical indicators for benchmarking different phenomena and developments in an Information Society. These indicators were piloted in representative population and establishment surveys in the 15 EU Member States, 10 Acceding and Candidate countries, the US and Switzerland in 2002 and 2003.
SIBIS offers a worldwide unique and outstanding data set with up-to-date comparable statistical data on the Information Society in 27 countries. The project results are publicly available via topic reports, Country reports, a statistics pocketbook, highlights documents and a SIBIS eEurope Indicator handbook and can be downloaded from the SIBIS website.
