Abstract This paper primarily seeks to highlight the importance of measuring the information society, given that information and communication technologies – the bedrock of the information society – have been touted as vehicles for development. To this end, this paper underscores the importance of measuring the information society and by extension its impact on development, especially in developing countries such as Guyana; examines the global effort to standardize indicators for measuring the information society; looks at what obtains as it relates to the gathering ICT data in Guyana; and finally recommends a way forward for measuring the information society in Guyana and wider world.
