The publication is intended to assist national statistical offices in the art of collecting and compiling ICT statistics. It deals with the collection, processing, evaluation and dissemination of ICT household statistics. The Manual will be a useful reference for ICT data producers worldwide. Indeed, an increasing number of countries are conducting specialized ICT household surveys or are including ICT questions in their existing household surveys.
This Manual complements the UNCTAD Manual on the Production of Statistics on the Information Economy, which covers ICT statistics collected through business surveys and is based on the Partnership core list of indicators on ICT use by businesses. The two Manuals provide a complete set of tools at the disposal of national statistical offices for use in their ICT data collection programmes.Custodian: ITU
