The monitoring of selected indicators of digital transformation in various subsectors of the economy and society shows that
Austria still ranks in the middle of the EU 27 in terms of digital transformation. The significant lag in the use of ultra-fast
broadband Internet by private households or the basic digital skills of Austria's population in an EU comparison is also reflected
in the low penetration of digital platform work. This is most likely to be found in the service sector, especially in accommodation
and food service activities, and contributes to cost and time savings.
