India’s web index score at 32.4 is ahead of China (31.1) and Pakistan (10.4), shows the 2013 study by World Wide Web Foundation. The organization was established in 2009 by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

 

The Web Index is a composite measure that summarizes in a single (average) number the health and social utility of the Web in various countries. The index score captures universal access, freedom and openness, relevant content and empowerment in the context of Internet.

 

In overall ranking, Sweden (with a web index score of 100) led the second edition of the WWWF‘s Web Index. India secured 56th rank, ahead of China (57th) and Pakistan (77th).

 

Norway and United Kingdom followed Sweden in the list, while Ethiopia and Yemen scored the lowest amongst the 81 countries studied.
