New Developments in ICT Statistics

23 February 2010, 9:00 – 10:00 am
Conference Room B (TNLB)
United Nations, New York

Information and communication technology (ICT) is a rapidly evolving sector, for which statistical standards and definitions need to be revised and adapted continuously. As the main data collectors, national statistical agencies therefore need to be aware of the latest developments in ICT statistics. This side event will present recent progress made to improve internationally comparable ICT data, and launch the 2010 edition of the Core ICT Indicators publication by the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development. Delegates will also be briefed about an upcoming global seminar on ICT statistics hosted by the Republic of Korea. Participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback on current and future ICT-related topics that will be addressed in July in Seoul.

Organizers: International Telecommunication Union (ITU)
  United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)
