The 2010 edition of Measuring the Information Society features the latest ITU ICT Development Index (IDI), which captures the level of advancement of ICTs in more than 150 countries worldwide and compares progress made between 2002, 2007 and 2008. It also measures the global digital divide and examines how it has developed in recent years, and it discusses the impact of ICTs on socio-economic development. The report also features the ICT Price Basket, which combines fixed, mobile and broadband tariffs one measure and compares 2008 and 2009 data across countries. The analytical report is complemented by a series of statistical tables providing country-level data for the indicators included in the IDI and Price Basket.
