Information Society Indicators

From policy making to indicators: Monitoring progress, measuring output, and assessing impact

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


National ict policies

National ICT policies

  • The purpose of a national ICT policy is to create an environment in which:

    • Economic and social benefits may be achieved

    • Utilization of resources may be optimized

    • Domestic technological capabilities may be built or enhanced

    • Decisions can be taken rationally

Evidence based policy making

Evidence-based policy making

  • Due to overwhelming accumulated evidence the Egyptian Government has enacted a policy that aims at increasing the proportion of households with a computer.

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Pc for every home

PC for Every Home

  • The policy initiative offers locally assembled quality PCs to citizens, to be paid for in affordable installments that are secured by their fixed line telephones.

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Information society indicators

  • The policy could possibly:

    • Focus on, or emphasize, gender, certain age groups, income categories, and/or geographic distribution

    • Be connected to other development goals and/or policy initiatives:

      • Development of the local computer manufacturing and services industries

      • The “Free Internet” initiative

What to do how to go about it

What to do!!! How to go about it???

  • Verify the evidence

    • Establish a true picture of the current status as relates to the evidence and the objectives of the policy initiative:

      • The proportion/distribution of households with computer with respect to gender, age, income, and/or geographic distribution

      • Volume and prices of locally manufactured PCs

      • Others

More..

  • Monitor the progress of implementation

    • Track the volume of PCs sold

    • Track the proportion/distribution of households buying PCs

    • Monitor the average price of PCs sold compared to the average household income

    • Others

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Information society indicators

More..

  • Measure the output

    • Direct output

      • The volume of locally manufactured PCs sold through POSs

    • Indirect output

      • The difference in PCs sold by other manufacturers in the same price range as those above

      • The difference in PCs sold by all manufacturers in other price ranges

      • Others

STATISTICS

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


National statistical offices

National Statistical Offices

  • NSOs are responsible for collecting national data

  • National data provide a picture of a country’s internal economic and social status that is essential for policy makers

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Statistics collection

Statistics collection

  • National censuses

  • Surveys

  • Administrative registries

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Capmas

CAPMAS

  • The Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics [CAPMAS] is the National Statistical Office in Egypt

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


General census on population housing and establishment 2006

General Census on Population, Housing, and Establishment – 2006

  • CAPMAS is set to collect information society statistics in its coming census, including a measure of the proportion of households with computers

Information society indicators

  • CAPMAS will provide policy makers with the following:

    • Snap Shot of the current status

    • Sample frames for future surveys

    • Indicators that may be used for policy adjustment and measuring some outputs

    • Other related indicators

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Indicators

Indicators

  • Indicators are based upon the idea that statistical data provides evidence for evaluation of current policies and future policymaking. This way, their effectiveness lies in the way they support the policymaking process, both by providing impulse for, and evaluation of, policies.

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Information society indicators

More..

  • Indicators must be judiciously relevant, well thought of, and cleverly constructed:

    • Be relevant to the characteristics or policy objective

    • Allow for measurement of important characteristics or real policy objectives directly, or indirectly through an adequate proxy

    • Be straightforward to interpret temporal changes observed with regard to the essential dimensions of the specified characteristics or policy objective. Inversely, unambiguous and significant changes of any indicator values over time should be meaningful in terms of the considered characteristic or policy objective

Hesham A. Auda, ESCWA


Information society indicators

More..

  • Indicators must also exhibit certain statistical characteristics, the same characteristics sought while collecting statistics:

    • Conform to international standards, if they exist, or, otherwise, be simplified alternatives to internationally agreed-upon indicators, so countries with less well-developed statistical capacity can still carry out the required measurements

    • Exhibit temporal change that would support monitoring

    • Be robust to systemic and cultural differences between countries over time

    • Have sufficient coverage to ensure that the indicator values are unlikely to mislead policy makers or uses in case they do not fully cover the target population
