This report analyses and evaluates information and communication technology (ICT) development using indicators of ICT diffusion across countries. It develops a conceptual framework for and selects key indicators measuring ICT development, with a specific focus on information and communication technologies (ICTs) as pervasive technologies of global impact, wide application and growing potential. Also, it benchmarks levels of existing infrastructure connectivity, as well as measures of future potential and important determinants affecting countries’ abilities to absorb, adopt and make use of these rapidly evolving technologies.
