datasets

Project collaborators have developed a range of data for our work, and we believe in making our data available to others.

  1. ICT Diffusion and Distribution Dataset, 1990-2007
    This dataset covers the years 1990 through 2007 and contains two types of indicators for the global distribution of information, communication and technology (ICT) resources. The data includes gini coefficients for the distribution of Internet access within countries, and a technology diffusion index that weights the distribution of broadband subscribers, personal computers, mobile phones, Internet users, and international Internet bandwidth by economic output. The data are secondary source data, based on the analysis of primary data from 204 surveys fielded in 47 countries from around the developing world. [Download from the ICPSR] [Download Local]
