The Working Party on Indicators for the Information Society (WPIIS) discussed an earlier draft of the Guide for Measuring the Information Society at its April 2005 meeting. A number of WPIIS delegates and others have provided comments, both before and since the April meeting.

The Guide was prepared by Sheridan Roberts of the OECD with substantial input from a number of other contributors (see Acknowledgements below).

The OECD’s ICCP Committee declassified the Guide through a written procedure which was completed on 4 November 2005.

The Guide is published under the responsibility of the Secretary-General of the OECD.
