The focus of this paper is to link e-skills to readily available indicators and assess the quality of indicators currently used to capture e-skills. For this purposes an index is constructed from self-reported confidence levels for a range of typical computing and Internet skills. This research adds one tile to the overall picture by identifying an indicator that captures e-skills better than existing indicators in use.
