New statistics platform offers more data, enhanced user experience

To support evidence-based policy- and decision-making, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) kicked off a new data platform featuring around 200 statistical indicators on digital connectivity, trust, markets, governance, sustainability, and affordability. The ITU DataHub is the world’s richest source of internationally comparable digital technology statistics and regulatory information. To this aim, it offers an intuitive, mobile-friendly interface complete with country and regional profiles and data tables, allowing users to quickly find, view, compare, and download statistics on all aspects of information and communication technologies (ICTs). ‘Industry and governments alike depend on rich, reliable data to drive effective ICT decision-making. ITU’s increasingly accessible global statistics will contribute to achieving a sustainable digital transformation based on meaningful connectivity for all,’ said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao.
