How do we measure digital inequalities? What is the basic package of digital goods, services, and skills that different households need to live in a digital world?
The Minimum Digital Living Standard (MDLS) is a major research project led by the University of Liverpool in partnership with Loughborough University, City University, and Good Things Foundation, which has developed a measure of digital inclusion generated by citizens based on their own experiences and needs. MDLS has been developed not to reflect a minimum for survival but rather a minimum for remaining socially engaged.
We presented the MDLS at a DPA seminar - you can see the recording here:
