The latest result of the European Commission's measurement of public opinion towards major Information Society (IS) applications, has just been published on the "EuroBarometer's" website. The barometer records data on a number of topics including reasons for citizens' lack of interest in the Information Society, as well as why people buy certain kinds of technologies.
Since 1997, the Information Society Activity Centre of the European Commission has been responding to a high demand for quantitative data on the development and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Europe. The results of the Centre's work are presented in a comprehensive survey entitled "Measuring Information Society".
This document also presents an annual survey on the use and awareness of Information Society Technologies and services.
"Measuring Information Society" for 1998 is now available from the following website:
