Join us for an introduction to the Global Impact Study surveys of public access ICT venue operators, users and non-users. Learn about the research objectives and delve into the survey design, questionnaire construction, data collected and emerging findings. Share your views on data analysis possibilities and the project’s plans for public release of the data.

The Global Impact Study of Public Access to Information and Communication Technologies is a five-year project (2007-2012) to generate evidence about the scale, character, and impacts of public access to information and communication technologies (ICTs). Looking at libraries, telecenters, and cybercafés, the study investigates impact in a number of areas, including communication and leisure, culture and language, education, employment and income, governance, and health. As a core component of the project we carried out surveys of public access ICT venue operators, users and non-users in five countries – Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Ghana and the Philippines. The data with accompanying meta-documentation will be made publicly available upon completion of the project.
