Surveys, Statistics and Online Portals

The Telecommunication Development Bureau conducts annual surveys to monitor the growth of telecommunications and trends in regulatory practices around the world. ITU maintains several key databases, including the World Telecommunication Indicators Database and World Telecommunication Regulatory Database. Key in- formation from these databases is disseminated for free through the ICT Eye, an online one-stop statistical portal providing ICT information including national tariff policies, operator data, regulatory information and links to the WSIS Stocktaking database. ITU is a founding partner of the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development, launched in 2004 to promote the measurement and collection of ICT indicators at national, regional and international levels. Its members include ITU, OECD, UNCTAD, UNESCO, four UN Regional Commissions, the UN ICT Task Force and World Bank, as well as some National Statistical Offices (NSOs). The Partnership aims to develop a core set of common ICT indicators in a global data- base and to enhance the capacity of NSOs in methodologies, survey programmes and other functions.

The Global Regulators' Exchange (G-REX) is ITU's password-protected online forum for national regulatory authorities and policy-makers, providing assistance to countries and facilitating the exchange of regulatory best practices. The number of exchanges and number of members are growing steadily. ITU's TREG website provides access to a wealth of online resources, including events, publications, reports, case studies and a regulatory newslog tracking the latest regulatory news and developments.
