Abstract: This report shows the scores of the 2008 e-business readiness index for European enterprises. The 2008 e-business readiness index, evaluated using data from the 2007 ICT enterprise survey carried out by Eurostat, is a useful mechanism for comparing e-business adoption and use by firms in the various European countries. The e-business readiness index measures the ICT adoption by enterprises using 6 indicators and measures ICT use by enterprises using another 6 indicators. The report describes the 12 benchmark indicators and the data coverage. The index obtained with the 2007 data is compared with the index calculated from previous years. The trends of the benchmark indicators are analysed and the robustness of the index scores among countries is tested to assess the significance of country rankings.
