10 Methodology: Variables n All individual variables are normalized to one so they can be combined into a composite variable. Mobile Users/100Score/MaxMobile Ratio Hong Kong / = 11 Finland / =

11 Methodology: Groups n The variables in each group are aggregated to form the three index components # of VariablesWeight 6 of 61/6 5 of 61/5 4 of 61/4 3 of 61/3 Less than 3Dropped Infrastructure # of VariablesWeight 6 of 61/6 5 of 61/5 4 of 61/4 3 of 61/3 Less than 3Dropped Usage # of VariablesWeight 10 of 101/10 9 of 101/9 8 of 101/8 7 of 101/7 6 of 101/6 5 of 101/5 Less than 5Dropped Market Structure

12 Methodology: Weighting n Factor analysis on 3 composite variables. n 177 Economies n Year 2000 Data

13 Methodology: Index n Factor analysis assigns a weight to each of the categories (line 1) n If a category is missing, the weight shifts proportionately to the remaining categories n Any economy missing the infrastructure category is dropped
