According to Eurostat data, just 13 % of the EU labour force has no digital skills, although some Member States’ individual rates are relatively high. Rates are at or above 20 % in seven Member States: Greece, Cyprus, Poland, Portugal, Italy, Bulgaria and Romania. In the latter two, more than a third of the labour force has no digital skills. Some 37 % of the EU labour force can be considered as having insufficient (that is, low-level or altogether missing) digital skills. In 15 Member States (France, Slovenia, Spain, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Poland, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Romania) this percentage is higher. In Bulgaria (64 %) and Romania (70 %), most of the labour force has low or no digital skills.
