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 were an estimated 6.8 billion mobile-cellular subscriptions globally. The number of individuals using the Internet has risen constantly and reached an estimated 2.7 billion while the number of fixed (wired)- broadband subscriptions reached 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 2014 illustrates the progress of this revolution for 214 economies around the world. It provides comparable statistics on the sector for 2005 and 2012 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 2012 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. • Figures in 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. Aggregates for groups of economies are based on the World Bank’s regional and income classifications. Because of missing data, aggregates should be treated as approximations of unknown totals or average values. The aggregation method for each indicator is noted in the glossary. Sums (s) are simple totals of available data. Weighted averages (w) are calculated using the value of the denominator or, in some cases, another indicator as the weight. Median (m) calculations are based on available data and exclude economies with populations below 1 million. For more information about aggregation methods visit datahelpdesk.worldbank.org. The cutoff date for data is March 1, 2014.

The Little Data Book on Information and Communication Technology


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 $1,035 or less in 2012. Middle-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of more than $1,035 but less than $12,616. Lower-middle-income and upper-middle income economies are separated at a GNI per capita of $4,085. High-income economies are those with a GNI per capita of $12,616 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, Latvia, 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) (w) 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) (w) 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) (m) 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, fiberto-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 wirelessbroadband category. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) 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) (m) Fixed-telephone subscriptions refers to the sum of active number of analog fixed-telephone lines, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) subscriptions, fixed wireless local loop (WLL) subscriptions, ISDN voice-channel equivalents, and fixed public payphones. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) 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. Aggregates are based on constant 2005 U.S. dollars. GDP is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without

Glossary making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. (World Bank and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) (w) GNI per capita, World Bank Atlas method, is gross national income (GNI) converted to U.S. dollars using the World Bank Atlas method divided by the midyear population. GNI is the sum of value added by all resident producers plus any product taxes (less subsidies) not included in the valuation of output plus net receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income) from abroad. GNI, calculated in national currency, is usually converted to U.S. dollars at official exchange rates for comparisons across economies. The World Bank Atlas method is used to smooth fluctuations in prices and exchange rates. It averages the exchange rate for a given year and the two preceding years, adjusted for differences in rates of inflation between the country and the Euro area, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. (World Bank) (w) Gross primary, secondary, and tertiary enrollment is the combined number of students enrolled in primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of education, regardless of age, as a percentage of the population of official school age for the three levels. (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Institute for Statistics) (w) Households with a computer refers to the percentage of households with a computer at home. A computer includes a desktop computer, a laptop (portable) computer, or a tablet (or similar handheld computer). It does not include equipment with some embedded computing abilities such as smart TV sets, and devices with telephony as their primary function, such as smartphones. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) Households with Internet access at home refers to the percentage of households with Internet access at home. Access is not assumed to be only via a computer—it may also be by mobile phone, tablet, PDA, games machine, digital TV, etc. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) ICT goods exports and imports are goods that are intended to fulfill the function of information processing and communication by electronic means, including transmission and display, or that use electronic processing to detect, measure, or record physical phenomena or to control a physical process. They include telecommunications, audio and video, computer and related equipment; electronic components; and other information and communication technology goods. Software is excluded. Re-exports (exports of foreign goods in the same state as previously imported) are included. (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) (w) ICT service exports comprise communications services (telecommunications, business network services, teleconferencing, support services, and postal services) and computer and information services (database, data processing, software design and development, maintenance and repair, and news-related service transactions).

Glossary Individuals using the Internet refers to the percentage of individuals who have used the Internet (from any location) in the last 12 months. Internet can be used via a computer, mobile phone, personal digital assistant, games machine, digital TV, etc. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) International Internet bandwidth refers to the total used capacity of international Internet bandwidth, in bits per second per Internet user. 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) (w) International voice traffic, total is the sum of international incoming and outgoing telephone fixed and mobile telephone traffic (in minutes). (International Telecommunication Union) (w) 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 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 postpaid 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) (m) 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 number of active prepaid accounts (i.e., that have been used during the last three months). The indicator applies to all mobile-cellular subscriptions that offer voice communications. It excludes subscriptions via data cards or

(International Telecommunication Union) (w) Online service index is one of the three component indicators for the United Nation’s e-Government Development Index (EGDI). Online service index measures the level of sophistication of a government’s online presence based on four stages of e-government evolution: emerging presence, enhanced presence, transactional presence, and connected presence. A value of 0 indicates the lowest presence, a value of 1 the highest. (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs and United Nations Public Administration Network) (m) Population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship, except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. Data are midyear estimates. (World Bank) (s) Population covered by a mobile-cellular network refers to the percentage of people within range of a mobile-cellular signal, irrespective of whether they are subscribers or users or not. This is calculated by dividing the number of people within range of a mobile-cellular signal by the total population and multiplying by 100. (International Telecommunication Union) (w) Regulatory treatment of VoIP indicates whether the country has any regulatory treatment on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), a generic term to describe the techniques used to carry voice traffic over IP. The status are categorized as banned, closed, no framework, or allowed. “Closed” means that wholesale VoIP is permitted, but retail VoIP is banned, as well as cases where only the incumbent is licensed to provide VoIP. (B = banned, C = closed, No = no framework, A = allowed) (International Telecommunication Union) Secure Internet servers are the number of servers using encryption technology for Internet transactions. Data listed for 2012 are for December 2013. (Netcraft) (w) Separate telecommunications/ICT regulator indicates whether the country has a separate telecommunications/ICT Regulatory Authority independent in terms of finance, structure, and decision making from the operators and the sector Ministry. (International Telecommunication Union) Status of main fixed-line telephone operator indicates whether the incumbent fixed-line operator is a public or private entity. Public refers to a fully stateowned operator that has remained 100 percent government-owned since its creation or has been re/nationalized; private refers to a fully private operator that is 100 percent private, either as a result of a privatization or created as such; and mixed refers to a partially private operator that has a portion of its shares sold to either a private operator or to the public (e.g., through Initial
