The Swedish Public Health Authority (Folkhälsomyndigheten) is using Telia Crowd Insights data to measure changes as a result of CV19 measures. Using anonymised movement data from Telia’s network, they are able to compare how many people are moving and where. This in turn enables them to assess the effectiveness of measures taken to minimise the spread of infection.
Telia Crowd Insights is a service that analyses anonymized and aggregated mobile network data. The service is commonly used in urban and community planning to create more sustainable cities and more efficient travel. During the corona crisis, Telia Crowd Insights has gained a new scope. Telia's anonymized data enables the Public Health Authority to understand how groups of people move in society, for example between municipalities and regions or within a city.
“I am proud of the opportunity to support the Public Health Authority in the fight against the corona virus. Data is a very accurate and secure decision basis that allows you to see patterns that would otherwise have been difficult to detect, insights that become important when mapping and taking measures against the spread of infection”, says Kristofer Ågren, Head of Data Insights at Telia
