The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology

Preface
Since the late 1990s access to information and communication technologies
has seen tremendous growth—driven primarily by the wireless technologies
and liberalization of telecommunications markets. Mobile communications
have evolved from simple voice and text services to diversified innovative
applications that reach more than 4 billion people globally, including people
in remote and rural areas. The number of Internet users has risen constantly
and now tops 1.6 billion people, with the number of broadband connections
up to 400 million in 2008.
The impacts of information and communication technologies cross all
sectors. Research shows that investment in information and communication
technologies is associated with such economic benefits as higher productivity,
lower costs, new economic opportunities, job creation, innovation, and
increased trade and exports. Information and communication technologies
also help provide better services in health and education and strengthen
social cohesion.
The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology 2010
charts the progress of this revolution for 210 countries around the world. It
provides comparable statistics on the sector for 2000 and 2008 across a
range of indicators, enabling readers to readily compare countries.
This book includes indicators covering the economic and social context, the
structure of the information and communication technology sector, sector
efficiency and capacity, and sector performance related to access, usage,
quality, affordability, trade, and applications. The Glossary contains definitions
of the terms used in the tables.

Data notes
The data in this book are for 2000 and 2008 or the most recent year unless
otherwise noted in the table or the Glossary.

Growth rates are proportional changes from the previous year unless
otherwise noted.

Regional aggregates include data for low- and middle-income
economies only.

Italics indicate data for years or periods other than those
specified.

Symbols used:
..

indicates that data are not available or that aggregates cannot
be calculated because of missing data.

0 or 0.0

indicates zero or small enough that the number would round
to zero at the displayed number of decimal places.

$

indicates current U.S. dollars.

Data are shown for economies with populations greater than 30,000 or for
smaller economies if they are members of the World Bank. The term country
(used interchangeably with economy) does not imply political independence
or official recognition by the World Bank but refers to any economy for which
the authorities report separate social or economic statistics.

The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology

Income group tables
For operational and analytical purposes the World Bank’s main criterion
for classifying economies is gross national income (GNI) per capita. Every
economy in The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology
is classified as low income, middle income, or high income. Low- and middleincome economies are sometimes referred to as developing economies. The
use of the term is convenient; it is not intended to imply that all economies
in the group are experiencing similar development or that other economies
have reached a preferred or final stage of development. Classification by
income does not necessarily reflect development status.
Low-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $975 or less
in 2008.
Middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of more than
$975 but less than $11,906. Lower-middle-income and upper-middle-income
economies are separated at a GNI per capita of $3,855.
High-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $11,906 or
more.
Euro area includes the member states of the Economic and Monetary
Union of the European Union that have adopted the euro as their currency:
Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy,
Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and
Spain.

population. GNI is the sum of value added by all resident producers plus any
product taxes (less subsidies) not included in the valuation of output plus net
receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income)
from abroad. GNI, calculated in national currency, is usually converted to U.S.
dollars at official exchange rates for comparisons across economies. The World
Bank Atlas method is used to smooth fluctuations in prices and exchange
rates. It averages the exchange rate for a given year and the two preceding
years, adjusted for differences in rates of inflation between the country and
the Euro area, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. (World Bank)

equipment, electronic components, audio and video equipment, and other
goods. Re-exports (exports of foreign goods in the same state as previously
imported) are included. (United Nations Statistics Division)
ICT service exports comprise communications services (telecommunications, business network services, teleconferencing, support services, and
postal services) and computer and information services (database, data
processing, software design and development, maintenance and repair,
and news agency services). (International Monetary Fund)
International Internet bandwidth is the capacity that backbone operators
provide to carry Internet traffic. (International Telecommunication Union
and TeleGeography)
International voice traffic is the sum of international incoming and outgoing
telephone traffic (in minutes). (International Telecommunication Union and
TeleGeography)
Internet users are people who pay for Internet access (dialup, leased line,
and fixed broadband) and people with access to the worldwide computer
network who do not directly pay (for example, people who are a member of
a household with access and people who access the Internet from work or
