Overview[]

Since 1999, the OECD Working Party on Indicators for the Information Society (WPIIS) has reported to the Committee for Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP). It plays a key role in setting international statistical standards and fostering the development of indicators by which countries can measure and compare their progress towards an Internet economy.

The WPIIS:

  • Ensures the continued improvement of the methodology for the collection of internationally comparable data for measuring the supply and demand for, and impacts of, ICTs
  • Compiles ICT statistics and assists in developing and interpreting statistical indicators which aid formulation of ICT and related policies, and monitoring progress.
