Monitoring eAccessibility - dynamic report

Benchmarking reports Influence of national initiatives for monitoring accessibility of public websites and mandatory labelling/certification schemes in the level of public website accessibility


The variables considered in this report are:

  • Accessibility of public web sites.
  • National monitoring for compliance of public websites with web Accessibility.
  • Certification or labelling of accessibility in public websites.

The underlying hypotheses are:

  • The higher the level of monitoring of accessibility of public websites, the more positive the situation of accessibility of the public websites is expected to be.
  • The existence of a mandatory system of certification of web accessibility has a positive influence on the situation of accessibility of the public websites.


At the aggregate level (all countries, EU countries, non-EU countries), the icons show the trend of the correlation between the variables analyzed in the countries in each group. Since the data (sample) for the aggregate levels are low for statistical calculations, 17 for all countries, 13 for EU countries and 4 for non-EU countries, the correlation is not statistically significant, so the results show a merely indicative correlation:

  • Positive correlationPositive correlation (correlation coefficient greater than +0,33)
  • No correlationNo correlation (correlation coefficient between -0.33 and +0,33), and
  • Negative correlationNegative correlation (correlation coefficient less than -0.33).
