Sweden scores 7.84 and retains its ranking of 1st amongst the innovation-driven economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011 index. Sweden had also finished in 1st place with a score of 7.95 in 2010.
This year, the country is in a virtual draw for the lead with the United States, whereas last year there was some separation between the two countries. The reason for these developments is likely a combination of using new data, new weights for the six components of the Scorecard, and perhaps some catch-up by the United States.
As was the case last year, and in all previous years, Sweden is a consistently strong performer in all areas with few weaknesses.
