  • Socio-demographic and spatial structure and the consequent consumption or online behaviour
  • Possibility of using online services (e.g. technical equipment, network availability, restrictions on online services)
  • Actual use of online offerings (especially online shopping and social media activity) 
  • regional prosperity level (purchasing power, disposable income, consumption expenditure) On the basis of these factors - individually calibrated for the respective country - deviations from the average usage per spatial unit are calculated and displayed as an index.
