Monitoring eAccessibility - dynamic report

Benchmarking reports Level of accessibility of Urban environment in comparison with urban environment accessibility policy and mandatory labelling/certification schemes on accessibility to self-service technology


The variables considered in this report are:

  • Accessibility of Urban environment.
  • Urban environment accessibility policy.
  • Certification or labelling of accessibility to self-service technology.

The underlying hypotheses are:

  • The higher the level of implementation of the urban environment accessibility policy, the more positive the level of the urban envitonment is expected to be.
  • The existence of mandatory labeling/certification schemes on accessibility to self-service technology positively influences the accessibility degree the urban environment.


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).
