One of its main missions: Search for statistics on: Supply of pubic Internet access centres User demand P:\ENG\ITU-D\BDT\PSF\MEF\TDS\MEX04\16_OSILAC_E.PPT2

11 Standardization of indicators 2. Identify a way of comparing countries Number of inhabitants per infocentre x region = Inhabitants/Infocentre Size of region by number of inhabitants Category 1: 0-99 thousand Category 2: 100 thousand - 299 thousand Category 3: 300 thousand - 499 thousand Supply indicators 1.Idenfity common feature in the definition of access point Access point has the backing of a government programme Category 4: 500 thousand - 999 thousand Category 5: one million - two million Category 6: two million P:\ENG\ITU-D\BDT\PSF\MEF\TDS\MEX04\16_OSILAC_E.PPT11

12 Standardization of indicators Average inhabitants per infocentre according to size of regional/provincial population 3. Derive the indicator i = number of regions with population size j j = 1, …, N ; N = number of possible population sizes P:\ENG\ITU-D\BDT\PSF\MEF\TDS\MEX04\16_OSILAC_E.PPT12

13 Standardization of indicators Average inhabitants per infocentre by size of region/province P:\ENG\ITU-D\BDT\PSF\MEF\TDS\MEX04\16_OSILAC_E.PPT13
