Purpose- Information and communication technologies have a strong influence on sustainable economic growth and global competition. The countries that adapt to the speed of these technologies and have skills, infrastructure and accessibility to use these technologies will benefit from the strong influence of ICT. Various analyses, measurements, and comparisons are made to measure this effect.
Methodology- Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Development Index prepared annually by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is a composite index calculated from eleven indicators to monitor developments in the field of ICT and make the comparison between countries.
Findings- In this study, the efficiency of the indicators in the ICT Development Index (IDI) in OECD countries was examined by data envelopment analysis.
Conclusion- By evaluating the relative effectiveness of the countries, the efficiency scores and reference values were determined for 2015.
