Consumer Digital Index Report

What is the Consumer Digital Index?

The Consumer Digital Index is the UK’s largest measure of digital and financial lives. First published in 2016, the report uses a blend of transactional and survey data allowing data-matching of behaviours with attitudes – to date we have spoken to over 27,000 customers.

This year’s report also includes the 2023 UK Essential Digital Skills benchmark; a measure of the fundamental tasks needed to access the online world including the essential digital skills needed for life and work.  Lloyds Bank commission this report on behalf of the Department for Education. We have interviewed by telephone or face-to-face, over 20,000 individuals.
