Australia scores 6.93 and retains its ranking of 7th amongst the innovation-driven economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011 index. With a score of 7.04, Australia had finished in the same position in 2010 as well.
As in the previous years, this year too Australia, Canada, Finland and the U.K. are ranked relatively close to each other. Hence, a certain amount of position-swapping between these countries is always possible.
Australia performs particularly well on business investment metrics, but somewhat less well on
consumer metrics as depicted in Table 1.
