OSILAC stands for the Observatory for the Information Society in Latin America and the Caribbean. The main objective of OSILAC is to centralize and harmonize data that serve to monitor the status of what is known as the "information society" in the Latin American and Caribbean region. The Observatory provides support for national statistical institutes in compiling indicators on information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the region and in employing the associated methodology. OSILAC promotes the implementation of an international platform of ICT statistics, in order to:



(1) Centralize data, indicators, methodologies and qualitative information on ICTs from all over the region;

(2) Standardize and harmonize ICT statistics compiled at the subregional, national and local level.

(3) Increase and improve the quantity and quality of ICT data collected in the region, coordinating the methodological aspects that this entails.
