The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology

Preface
Since the late 1990s access to information and communication technologies (ICTs) has seen tremendous growth—driven primarily by the wireless technologies and liberalization of telecommunications markets. Mobile communications have evolved from simple voice and text services to diversified innovative applications and mobile broadband Internet. By the end of 2013, there will be an estimated 6.8 billion mobile-cellular subscriptions globally. The number of individuals using the Internet has risen constantly and will reach an estimated 2.7 billion while the number of fixed (wired)broadband subscriptions will reach almost 700 million at the end of 2013. The impacts of ICTs cross all sectors. Research has shown that investment in information and communication technologies is associated with such economic benefits as higher productivity, lower costs, new economic opportunities, job creation, innovation, and increased trade. ICTs also help provide better services in health and education, and strengthen social cohesion. The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology 2013 illustrates the progress of this revolution for 214 economies around the world. It provides comparable statistics on the sector for 2005 and 2011 across a range of indicators, enabling readers to readily compare economies. This book includes indicators covering the economic and social context, the structure of the information and communication technology sector, sector efficiency and capacity, and sector performance related to access, usage, quality, affordability, trade, and applications. The glossary contains definitions of the terms used in the tables. For more information and other World Bank data publications, visit our data  Web site at data.worldbank.org or the Web site of the Information and Communication Technologies Department at www.worldbank.org/ict. For more statistics on information and communication technology infrastructure, access and usage, as well as analytical reports such as the annual Measuring the Information Society report, visit ITU’s Web site at www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Statistics/Pages/default.aspx and the ITU ICT Eye at www.itu.int/icteye.

Data notes
The data in this book are for 2005 and 2011 or the most recent year unless otherwise noted in the table or the glossary. • Growth rates are proportional changes from the previous year unless otherwise noted. • Regional aggregates include data for low- and middle-income economies only. • Italics indicate data for years or periods other than those specified. Symbols used: .. indicates that data are not available or that aggregates cannot be calculated because of missing data. 0 or 0.0 indicates zero or small enough that the number would round to zero at the displayed number of decimal places. $ indicates current U.S. dollars.

Lettered notes on some country tables can be found in the notes on page 232. Data are shown for economies with populations greater than 30,000 or for smaller economies if they are members of the World Bank or the ITU. The term country (used interchangeably with economy) does not imply political independence or official recognition by the World Bank or the ITU but refers to any economy for which the authorities report separate social or economic statistics.

Income group tables
For operational and analytical purposes the World Bank’s main criterion for classifying economies is gross national income (GNI) per capita. Every economy in The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology is classified as low income, middle income, or high income. Low- and middleincome economies are sometimes referred to as developing economies. The use of the term is convenient; it is not intended to imply that all economies in the group are experiencing similar development or that other economies have reached a preferred or final stage of development. Classification by income does not necessarily reflect development status. Note: Classifications are fixed during the World Bank’s fiscal year (ending on June 30), thus countries remain in the categories in which they are classified irrespective of any revisions to their per capita income data. Low-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $1,025 or less in 2011. Middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of more than $1,025 but less than $12,476. Lower-middle-income and upper-middleincome economies are separated at a GNI per capita of $4,035. High-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $12,476 or more. Euro area includes the member states of the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union that have adopted the euro as their currency: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and Spain.

Glossary
Adult literacy rate is the percentage of people ages 15 and older who can, with understanding, read and write a short, simple statement about their everyday life. (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization Institute for Statistics) Domestic mobile-telephone traffic refers to the total number of minutes of calls made by mobile subscribers within a country (including minutes to fixed-telephone and minutes to mobile-phone subscribers). (International Telecommunication Union) Fixed-broadband sub-basket refers to the price of the monthly subscription to an entry-level fixed broadband plan. For comparability reasons, the fixed broadband sub-basket is based on a monthly usage of (a minimum of) 1 gigabyte (GB). For plans that limit the monthly amount of data transferred by including caps below 1 gigabyte, the cost for additional bytes is added to the sub-basket. The minimum speed of a broadband connection is 256 kbit/s. (International Telecommunication Union) Fixed (wired)-broadband subscriptions refers to subscriptions to high-speed access to the public Internet (a TCP/IP connection), at downstream speeds equal to, or greater than, 256 kbit/s. This includes cable modem, DSL, fibre-to-the-home/building and other fixed (wired)-broadband subscriptions. This total is measured irrespective of the method of payment. It excludes subscriptions that have access to data communications (including the Internet) via mobile-cellular networks. It excludes technologies listed under the wireless-broadband category. (International Telecommunication Union) Fixed-telephone sub-basket refers to the monthly price charged for subscribing to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), plus the cost of 30 local calls to the same (fixed) network (15 peak and 15 off-peak calls) of three minutes each. The service refers to the traditional fixed telephone line and does not refer to, for example, prices for managed VoIP. (International Telecommunication Union) Fixed-telephone subscriptions refers to the sum of active number of analog fixed-telephone lines, voice-over-IP (VoIP) subscriptions, fixed wireless local loop (WLL) subscriptions, ISDN voice-channel equivalents, and fixed public payphones. (International Telecommunication Union) Foreign ownership refers to the allowance of foreign participation or ownership in facility-based and spectrum-based operators as well as in Internet Service Providers (ISPs). (No = not allowed, R = allowed with restrictions, A = allowed without restrictions) (International Telecommunication Union) GDP growth is the annual percentage growth rate of gross domestic product (GDP) at market prices based on constant local currency.

It is measured as the sum of used capacity of all Internet exchanges (locations where Internet traffic is exchanged) offering international bandwidth. If capacity is asymmetric (i.e. more incoming [downlink] than outgoing [uplink] capacity), then the incoming (downlink) capacity should be provided. (International Telecommunication Union) International voice traffic, total is the sum of international incoming and outgoing telephone fixed and mobile telephone traffic (in minutes). (International Telecommunication Union) Level of competition, international gateway, is the level of competition for international gateway(s). International gateway is any facility that provides an interface to send and receive electronic communications (i.e., voice, data and multimedia images/video) traffic between one country’s domestic network facilities and those in another country. (M = monopoly, P = partial competition, C = full competition). (International Telecommunication Union) Level of competition, Internet service, is the level of competition for retail Internet access service. (M = monopoly, P = partial competition, C = full competition). (International Telecommunication Union) Level of competition, mobile telephone service, is the level of competition for digital cellular mobile services. (M = monopoly, P = partial competition, C = full competition). (International Telecommunication Union) Mobile cellular and fixed-telephone subscriptions per employee are telephone subscribers (fixed-telephone plus mobile) divided by the total number of telecommunications employees. (International Telecommunication Union) Mobile-cellular sub-basket refers to the price of a standard basket of mobile monthly usage for 30 outgoing calls per month (on-net, off-net, to a fixed line, and for peak and off-peak times) in predetermined ratios, plus 100 SMS messages. The mobile-cellular sub-basket is based on prepaid tariffs although post-paid tariffs may be used for countries where prepaid subscriptions make up less than three percent of all mobile-cellular subscriptions. The mobile-cellular prepaid sub-basket is largely based, but does not entirely follow, the 2009 methodology of the OECD low-user basket. (International Telecommunication Union) Mobile-cellular telephone subscriptions refers to the number of subscriptions to a public mobile-telephone service that provide access to the PSTN (public switched telephone network) using cellular technology. The indicator includes (and is split into) the number of postpaid subscriptions, and the
