This file contains the source code for the inventory database (http://database.globalimpactstudy.org/). The web application is written in PHP, using the Symfony framework, with a MySQL database back-end. Accompanying the source code is basic documentation describing the various components of the system. The extent of documentation, however, is intended for individuals with experience deploying these types of environments. Please note also that development of this project has ended. Although most bugs have been addressed, there is the possibility that some remain.

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.

This is the non-user field testing report for Bangladesh. It describes the process of testing the non-user survey in Bangladesh.

These include tables with counts and proportions of the majority of venue survey questions, and splits up the summaries by venue type. The files are separated by each of the sections of the venue survey. Open-ended questions, monetary answers, and numeric responses are not summarized. Please note that the summaries were done in batch using the statistical program “R” and may have some unnoticed formatting issues.
