Measuring the Information Society (MIS) is ITU’s flagship annual analytical report on the state of technology use, access and affordability worldwide, and features the latest ITU data and analysis of market developments. It is the world’s most comprehensive compilation of global ICT statistical indicators, and is widely referenced by other UN agencies, industry and NGOs.
The report presents the latest results of the ICT Development Index (IDI), an international benchmarking tool which ranks countries according to their ICT achievements. It also features the ICT Price Basket (IPB), a unique metric that tracks and compares the cost and affordability of ICT services across more than 160 countries globally.
In addition, this year’s MIS presents the first complete price data collection for mobile-broadband services, a model to measure the world’s ‘digital native’ population, and a quantitative overview of digital TV broadcasting trends.
