About the Digital STRI
The OECD Digital STRI identifies, catalogues and quantifies barriers that affect trade in digitally enabled services across 46 countries. It provides policy makers with an evidence-based tool that helps to identify regulatory bottlenecks, design policies that foster more competitive and diversified markets for digital trade, and analyze the impact of policy reforms.
The OECD Digital STRI captures cross-cutting impediments that affect all types of services traded digitally. As a stand-alone instrument, it complements the OECD Services Trade Restrictiveness Index (STRI).
The indices take values between 0 to 1, where 0 is completely open and 1 is completely closed. They are calculated on the basis of information provided in the Digital STRI regulatory database.
The OECD Digital STRI Simulator enables policy makers and experts to explore the impact of a change at a detailed level for each measure, and to compare the regulatory environment among countries.
