Libraries, telecenters, and cybercafés play a critical role in extending the benefits of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to a diverse range of people worldwide. However, their ability to contribute to development agendas has come into question in recent times. The Global Impact Study was designed to address this debate by generating evidence about the scale, character, and impacts of public access ICTs in eight countries: Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, Chile, Ghana, Lithuania, the Philippines, and South Africa.

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 venue survey data in CSV format. The venue survey data is also available in SPSS/SAV format in this web library. The venue survey data includes data from over 1,250 public access venue operators in Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Ghana, and the Philippines. The venue survey data follows the venue survey instrument, which can also be found in this web library.

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 non-user survey data in CSV format. The non-user survey data is also available in SPSS/SAV format in this web library. The non-user survey data includes data from over 2,000 non-users in Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Ghana, and the Philippines. The non-user survey data follows the non-user survey instrument, which can also be found in this web library.

The study assesses and describes the interplay between public PC-based Internet access and private mobile-based access for urban teenaged public access venue (PAV) users in Cape Town. South Africa is a particularly fruitful “leading edge” environment to do this work since not only mobile use, but specifically mobile Internet use, is increasingly common even among resource-constrained young people. We combine quantitative surveys with open-ended interviews of users and PAV operators.

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 SPSS/SAV format. The user survey data is also available in CSV 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.
