Abstract

The part 2 continues presenting the results of the study devoted to the assessment of the digital technologies’ impact on various industries, in order to define the tendencies of digitalization in Ukraine and the world. It is emphasized that various international statistical databases which specifics depends on the study’s objective are important for international comparisons. Due to the rapid development of technologies for collection, processing and communication of information, many organizations could perform various studies at macrolevel on the global economy scales, using international and national statistical databases covering nearly all the dimensions of the global development and including the indicators measuring digitalization processes in national economies and their segments.

Consideration is given to the database indicators measuring digitalization trends, with selecting the indicators reflecting these processes in individual economies and related to digital transformations in the transport. The particular attention is paid to the Ukraine’s position in these international databases and the completeness of information on relevant indicators in Ukraine. A comparison of the selected indicators with the indicators of digitalisation in the transport sector in the official statistical database was carried out, and the systematization of these indicators was made in order to further improve the official statistical database by including in it the indicators on the development of information and communication technologies in the transport sector.

The careful study and analysis of international and national statistical databases allowed for creating a set of indicators on digitalization in the transport sector, with including the indicators in it reflecting the dissemination of information and communication technologies in the transport sector and characterizing digital transformations in the transport. The proposed set of indicators is dynamic and can be complemented by other indicators in the process of digital transformations in the transport sector. Given the current global trends of the growing penetration of digital technology in all the spheres of human activity, this set of indicators can be used not only to monitor these processes in the transport sector, but also in the management practices.
