APSA 2009 Toronto Meeting Paper
This study focuses attention upon groups of countries at varying levels of development (high, medium and low), determines what types of information technology policies have been implemented within them and shows where such countries are in the various technological indices to indicate the level at which the digital divide can be said to exist in the various regions of the world with special emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region. It provides a window for policy makers to determine the impact of such policies upon economic growth and development in these groups of countries. It can ultimately determine their interconnectivity with the rest of the world and the significance of that digital divide.
