UN adopts core ICT indicators

A group of UN agencies adopted a list of core ICT indicators at a meeting in Geneva in February 2005. The intent is to have a common list of indicators to enhance international comparisons. The group of agencies, known as the "Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development" consists of the ITU, OECD, UNESCO Institute for Statistics, UN Regional Commissions, the UN ICT Task Force and the World Bank.

The core indicators are classified into three categories: Infrastructure and access core indicators (12 indicators), Access and use of ICTs by households and individuals (13 indicators) and Access and use of ICTs by businesses (12 indicators).

The list of core indicators is here:
