A number of the core ICT indicators can be applied to measuring the ten WSIS targets. Other WSIS targets go beyond the areas covered so far by the Partnership’s core indicators and include targets on connecting health centres, libraries, post offices and scientific and research centres, and encouraging linguistic diversity and local content on the Internet.
The indicators to measure the WSIS targets were also presented in a dedicated session at the ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators meeting (WTIM), which took place from 24‐26 November 2010, in Geneva, Switzerland. They were further discussed through the TG WSIS online discussion forum, which included 90 experts in the area of ICT measurement. This publication finalizes the work of the Task Group and other members of the online forum, by presenting a statistical framework and a set of indicators for measuring the WSIS targets.
