Download the report

The paper reviewed and evaluated existing work to measure ICT development from different sources. On the basis of this earlier work, a theoretical framework has been formulated with a view to measuring ICT development, including indicators for connectivity, access, usage and policy. The framework was used to benchmark and analyse the diffusion of ICT capabilities across 160–200 countries for 1995–2001. This paper was prepared by Ms. Philippa Biggs under the guidance of Mr. Mongi Hamdi of the UNCTAD secretariat. UNCTAD, 2003. (PDF, 96 pages.)
