The Connectivity Scorecard

Methodology

Presentation / Author / Date


Overview
Overview

  • Basic principles underlying methodology

    • Connectivity Scorecard is designed to relate deployment and usage of ICT to economic growth

  • Central element of Connectivity Scorecard

    • Division of economy into three “pillars”– business, consumers and government

    • Weighting of the three pillars

  • Division of pillars into categories

    • Infrastructure and “usage and skills”– mirror “capital” and “labour”

    • Sources of economic welfare– utility (for consumers) and productivity (for business and government)

Step 1 three pillars of the economy
Step 1: Three Pillars of the Economy

  • The Connectivity Scorecard captures the link between technology and economic growth

  • Rather than simply put together a list of ICT indicators and weight them equally it is important to

    • Consider the ways in which the ICT being measured (e.g., Internet usage) affects economic activity

      • e.g., is this Internet usage mainly resulting in increased consumer convenience or increased business or government productivity? (likely to be both)

    • Consider how to weigh consumer convenience versus business productivity versus government productivity?

  • Thus the very first step is to divide the economy into three “pillars”– Consumers, Business and Government– and assign weights to these pillars

    • Then we allocate each individual ICT metric (e.g., Internet usage) to one of these pillars

    • We further allocate the individual ICT metric to “Infrastructure” or “Usage and Skills”

Usage & Skills

Given ICT metric (e.g., literacy) is assigned to consumer, business or government– and then to “Infrastructure” or “Usage and Skills”

C, B and G are weights given to consumer, business and government

How do we derive c b and g
How do we derive C, B and G?

  • Key considerations:

    • Which pillar contributes most to long-term productivity growth? (the key to increased living standards)

    • What does economic literature tell us about how ICT impacts on productivity growth?

    • Finding: ICT has impacted on economic growth primarily through its impact on business productivity

  • Thus:

    • LECG looked at the weight of business transactions, consumption, and government consumption in the economy

    • The ‘size’ of business transactions relative to consumption by households/individuals and consumption by government yields the weight of business relative to the weight of consumers and government

Example derivation of c b and g for generic economy
Example: Derivation of C, B and G for “Generic Economy”

  • ‘Business Transactions’ is the sum of intermediate consumption (say $500 billion) plus investment (say $100 billion) = $600 billion

    • “Intermediate consumption” refers to consumption of the output of one sector by another sector in order to produce a final gooda

    • E.g., Manufacturing sector makes billions of $ of purchases of raw materials. This is “intermediate consumption”

  • ‘Consumers’ is final consumption by private individuals (say $300 billion)

  • [purchases of finished goods and services]

  • ‘Government’ is final consumption by government sector (say $100 billion)

  • Thus: Business Transactions= $600 billion, Consumers=$300 billion, Government=$100 billion

  • B= $600 billion/($600 billion + $300 billion + $100 billion) = 0.60 = 60%

  • C= $300 billion/($600 billion + $300 billion + $100 billion) = 0.30 = 30%

  • G= 1-(0.60+0.3) = 0.10 = 10%
