World Telecommunication/ITC Indicators Public Metrics

In the process of consolidating the 44 Excel files provided, I found some data points repeated with different values. The two cases of different values were: one was less precise, or one was left blank. Only the more precise and populated values are included here. When I attempted recalculate the compound annual growth rate (CARG) fields, I was not able to generate the same values in the original data set, so I let it unchanged (see their Technical Notes for additional details: )

In the original data set, some values were set in italics to denote “Year other than that specified or estimate” I did not retain that in the compilation of the data.

A value of zero could mean two things in this compiled data set:
- Zero or other small quantity, or not applicable
- Data not available
This is differentiation is retained in the notes column.
