Here come two resources to help understand the resemblances and differences among indexes to measure the Information Society.

The first one:

is a comparison of all (or almost, who knows one year after) the existing indexes

The second one:

    International Telecommunication Union. (2005). Measuring Digital Opportunity. Seoul: ITU.
    http://www.itu.int/osg/spu/ni/wsisbridges/linked_docs/Background_papers/Measuring_Digital_Opp_Revised_31_Oct_2005.pdf

is an essay led by the International Telecommunication Union to collaborate internationally to measure the digital divide: the Digital Opportunity Index
