This is the 45th and final edition of the Yearbook of Statistics. The data included in the Yearbook was collected and processed by the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) from replies received to ITU questionnaires sent to telecommunication ministries or regulators and national statistics offices. As such, the ITU Yearbook of Statistics provided the most authoritative source of data about the evolution of the telecommunication sector, the availability of ICTs in households and usage of ICTs by individuals.
As per Council 2017, the pdf version is available free of charge to Member States from a protected link via secured Member States TIES access. For more information, please contact ITU Sales.
As from 2020, the country-by-country pages formerly found in the Yearbook of Statistics will be found exclusively as part of the complete World Telecommunications/ICT Indicators Database, and no longer compiled separately. Yearbook of Statistics 2019 was the final edition in the series.
