In 2007, ITIF released the groundbreaking report Digital Prosperity: Understanding the Economic Benefits of the Information Technology Revolution that documented how IT, since the mid-1990s, has been the principal driver of increased economic growth not only in the United States but also in many other nations. Now ITIF is pleased to announce the release of a companion report, Digital Quality of Life: Understanding the Personal and Social Benefits of the Information Technology Revolution, that shows how IT is the key enabler of many, if not most, of today’s key innovations and improvements in our lives and society—from better education and health care, to a cleaner and more energy efficient environment, to safer and more secure communities.

Please join us on October 2, 2008 for a special event to release this report featuring remarks from Craig Mundie, Chief Research and Strategy Officer for Microsoft and a briefing on the report from Rob Atkinson, President, ITIF.
