As part of its commitment to open data, the Global Impact Study is providing the micro-data for the project surveys. This file contains the Global Impact Study user survey data in CSV format. The user survey data is also available in SPSS/SAV format in this web library. The user survey data includes data from over 5,000 public access information & communication technology users in public access venues, such as libraries, telecenters, and cybercafes in Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Ghana, and the Philippines.

In 2010, a massive earthquake struck Chile, followed by a tsunami that devastated several coastal communities. The Libraries, Telecenters, and the 2010 Chile Earthquake project examines post-disaster information and communication needs, services provided by libraries and telecenters, and how emergency management might be improved. Researchers found that libraries and telecenters played an important role in responding to the crisis.

Las bibliotecas y telecentros han jugado un papel fundamental en situaciones de emergencia y esta investigación examina su rol después del terremoto y tsunami que ocurrió en Chile en Febrero del 2010. Las diferentes iniciativas se llevaron a cabo por la necesidad de proporcionar acceso a la comunicación a los ciudadanos de las zonas afectadas, dándoles la oportunidad de recibir información de las consecuencias de la catástrofe y para permitirles comunicarse con amigos y familiares.

This report provides a review of the Infomediaries study's key variables and articulation of its hypotheses. Having completed Inception Missions to Chile (October 2009), Bangladesh (December 2009) and Lithuania (January 2010), we now have a foundation on which to build this analysis. This “Lessons Report” will be of interest to researchers who are interested in how our methodology has evolved and the data collection tools that we have settled on to work in three different country contexts.

This report presents the main conclusions of the case study about Public Access to ICT (PAI) venues that was developed as part of the first stage of the project entitled The Global Impact Study of Public Access to Information and Communication Technologies. The study was developed between June and September 2008 in Chile.
