I.N. Shchepina, A.A. Borodina Typology of digital technologies’ diffusion (the example of EU countries, United Kingdom and Russia)

The paper explores the features of the diffusion of digital technologies and reveals the typology of their distribution on the example of the EU countries, United Kingdom and Russia. The cluster analysis for this sample of countries has been conducted. Its’ results enabled to reveal three main groups of countries: the leaders in digital technologies diffusion (which are the countries with the high income per capita), the outsiders (these countries can be characterized with unsustainability in unevenness in digital technologies’ diffusion) and the countries, taking intermediate position between these two groups.

Key words: 

digital technologies, cluster analysis, innovations
