Methodology report



This report details the methodology which underpins the DCMS’s assessment of the costs and benefits of a radio switchover programme.

It sets out the approach which the DCMS has taken to modelling these impacts; including changes in the digital radio market under each of the radio switchover scenarios considered and the counterfactual of no switchover. The report explains the approach to estimating the expected impacts on consumers, producers and the wider society.
