Australia’s Digital Pulse
is a report looking at the key challenges for our nation in the fields of digital skills, jobs and education. The report has been prepared by leading consultancy Deloitte Access Economics for the Australian Computer Society.
The contribution of Digital Technologies to the Australian economy was $79 billion in 2013-14 compared with $50 billion in 2011. This number will only continue to grow, which is why having accurate data supported by economic theories and narrative is so important.
For many years the ACS produced the ACS Statistical Compendium which was seen as a respected source of data on the digital economy. Australia’s Digital Pulse builds on that work to deliver a detailed breakdown of the challenges facing Australia as we move into the digital future.
The report is presented in three broad sections – A Digital Economy Snapshot, Occupational Analysis and ICT Education in Schools. The report also contains an executive summary, a future directions statement and an appendix containing research data used in the creation of the report.
