Measuring the Information Society Report

Measuring the Information Society Report 2013

The MIS report, which has been published annually since 2009, features key ICT
data and benchmarking tools to measure the information society, including the ICT Development Index (IDI). The IDI captures the level of ICT developments in 157 economies worldwide and compares progress made during the last year. The MIS 2013 also presents the first comprehensive mobile-broadband price data set for almost 130 economies. It features a new model and data to measure the world's digital native population - those young people who were born into the digital age - and a quantitative overview of digital TV broadcasting trends.
The 5th edition of the ITU Measuring the Information Society (MIS) report was launched on 7 October 2013, at ITU headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland. Click here to watch the webcast of the launch. Launch events also took place in Addis Ababa, Bangkok, Brasilia, Cairo, Geneva, Moscow and New York.

*Annex 4 features the statistical tables of prices used to compute the ICT Price Basket. It includes detailed price data for 161 countries broken down by cost of fixed- telephone, mobile-cellular and fixed-broadband services, for the year 2012.
